“Hideous” Birds

I love the colorful mix of patterns and colors in these plush parrots created by Craftster user Karen_Sweet. Turns out they had a somewhat dubious beginning…

About a year ago, I came up with a way to put my collection of vintage polyester shirts to good use. I’ve been making “Hideous Birds” ever since.

I love the name, but definitely think they’re anything but hideous!
