I was happy to have a faster project. I had made a parrot before and birds bodies are pretty simple.  However, there were some parts that took a while: the beak, the wings and the feet.

I am really happy with how it turned out.

Who can? Toucan!

I just wrote a whole post and it got deleted for some dumb reason. Anyway, it said something about my brother getting me a couple of bundles of multi-colored felt for Christmas. One of the bundles had the colors on this here bird. I knew immediately that I would make a toucan...the vibrant colors just called for something tropical. Of course, I was working on those damn moose antlers at the time and couldn't put those down for fear of never picking them up again. Once they were finished, I started the toucan by drawing my templates and deciding which colors would go where.
