Native NZ bird 2

I am really liking how these turned out. Its always nice when you can surprise yourself!
I had to sketch the birds first and then simplify into main shapes and colours for the pattern pieces.
This bird has lovely colours, but they should really blend more together (will need to learn needle felting for this).




This bird is a Takahe, and can only be found in NZ. Such a gorgeous bird but it is now endangered.
