flying birds, excellent birds. watch them fly, there they go.

i like these super cute handsewn paper birdies from the uk’s cotton bird designs. they are fashioned from recycled maps, vintage textiles, sewing patterns and other ephemera. they are stitched by hand and have embroidered eyes and little wire feet.

i love the naive feel of these pieces and you already know i like birds. sculptural birds – even better, because they won’t fly away if i get real close to examine them.

oh dear, better get my credit card.

see the full selection the the cotton bird etsy shop.
