It has been ages since I made a fantail!
I have 2 very cute fantails flitting about the trees in my garden at the moment, and they inspired me to re-look at my patterns. I knew they were missing something, and then it came to me.. legs!!!
So after a number of failed attempts, (including strange little copper ones!) I have legs I am happy with. They are wrapped with cotton to make them look more life like.
they still have some movement with the wire so can be moved to help with balance or to help perch. I now have a little flock... next... can I do the same thing with my takahe?!
