I've never even tried tying anything like this. Maybe someday I will.

Never tried that myself either, looks really cool though. I originally thought the head was an oval bead but that's an excellent use of thin skin.

Yes, tail is emu, but he forgot to mention leg material. Something or other, Veli Autti style.

If I were more talented I might try my hand at more realistic patterns. Probably not, I do like hiding behind the fact that I believe strongly in the impressionistic school of design. Saves me from embarrassing myself. This one is very cool. Kudos to the folks with these skills.

I particularly like the method for the wing case. Haven't seen that technique before.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.
