I have started on the flannel flowers but they are quite elegant and dignified so I have to work a bit harder on projects to go with the designs. I thought the cockatoo would lend itself to some more casual projects so to start with I have designed and made a cockatoo mug rug or teapot mat. I have the Andy Warhol inspired pot holder in the works too.
Download the pattern from google docs.
Also rather than fill the page with instructions I have made a flickr set here.
I thought he would feel at home with my cute teapot for one.
I put a big washer in the base to give it weight. I bought these at the hardware for this purpose.
