With Covid-19 going on, it does not look like there will be any trips to the beaches of Florida anytime soon. So instead, I thought I would bring a piece of the beach to me. So sitting on the bookcase is Flo the Flamingo.
I found this cute free pattern (the best kind really) online. It was designed to be stuffed with a large bouncy ball, but since I did not have one available and did not have the patience to wait for one to be ordered, I opted to stuff her with Poly-fil. This option also makes gauge a non-issue.
The neck includes an internal pipe cleaner for a more realistic bend. The wings have a nice picot border giving them a ruffled look. And the legs were simple I-cords with knots for knees and a slightly larger foot.
