A Needle Felted Sparrow

I began making these needle felted birds so long ago - last year, I think.  I found a shoe box with six of them in various stages of completion.  All this one needed was her shawl and a bit of chalk rouge to be finished.

Actually, the way the shawl sits on her, it's more like a babushka - birds in babushkas!  Very cute, I think.

So I plan to finish the rest of them and put them in my Etsy shop.  The hardest part is cutting up the vintage hankies for the shawls.  It seems a waste, but then how many people actually use handkerchiefs these days?  It's a new life for them.
