Three Bird Inchies made from Scraps

 It's been a while since I've made any inchies, so I pulled out my wee ziploc baggy full of itsy bitsy scraps of watercolored paper. And whenever I don't want to think about what to create, I make birds. Birds are always a good subject matter for me :)
 Cutting out and piecing together teeny little bird bodies is pretty relaxing, but it can be tough to find a scrap with just the right shape... The bits of paper I use are just the little in-between pieces after using paper punches for the majority of watercolor backgrounds.
 Here's a nice, long-beaked fellow.
Of course, no surprise, I had to make a toucan, because they are my favorite :) Have a great weekend, folks.

And please enter my crochet giveaway that is going on until September 10!
