Love Birds

My soon-to-be sister-in-law recently sent me this picture and asked how hard it would be to recreate:
I'm not sure where the picture is from, so I can't give credit
I believe the idea originated from Ann Wood's birds
My exact thoughts were "So easy, I can totally do that." Well, I was right and I was wrong. I did it, but it was NOT easy! It was really fun though (except for handsewing the 4 prototypes to try to get the bodies right). I like trying new projects that make me use skills I don't normally choose to use.
So without further ado, here is my take on the birds:
Meet Mr. & Mrs. Sam Douglass
The bride is absolutely my favorite... LOVE her veil!
Close ups of the groom
Not as cute as the real couple, but close :)
Thanks for letting me help with this Jenna- I hope you like them!
