Bird of Paradise Toy

Good afternoon, dear readers. If you have old and wearable clothing, then do not rush to throw it away, because you can make a new and beautiful thing out of it. For example, you can make a toy from an old scarf and translucent plastic sheets with your own hands, similar to the one that is sold in a store. The finished toy will decorate the house or entertain the child. I decided to sew a toy bird of paradise:

To make this bird, I needed thread, scissors, paper, cloth, cotton, two red rhinestones, reliable rubber glue, two plastic sheets, red , pink and yellow nail polishes. Starting work, I made a paper sample:

I divide the resulting sample into five parts (wings, needles st, beak, as well as the upper and lower torso). Then I take the details of the torso, which I need to pin to the fabric folded in pairs,and cut them with allowance:

I seam these parts, making up four parts:

I sew the resulting two sides over the edges, taking into account the seam allowance and leaving a small section of the tail not sewn together in order to fill it with wadding wadding. Before stitching the head, I cut out from the plastic sheet the part of the beak, which I need to paint with yellow varnish. After waiting for the varnish to dry, I will need to sew the ready beak. Rhinestones can be used as eyes:

Next, I cut plastic legs and also cover them with yellow varnish on both sides:

Next, I fill the torso with cotton wool with cotton, then I sew a stitch in the middle of the tail, leaving the sides left and right unsewn. These sides will have to hold the tail of the toy when it is glued to the craft.

Now we take two durable plastic sheets and cut out the details of the wings and tail of them: Bird of Paradise
For the bottom of the plastic wings, we cut out four pieces of fabric, taking into account the allowances that need to be stitched on the wrong side:

Next, we need to sew the details from above , but leave the lower sides not stitched in order to put them on plastic parts:
