Invasion of the Dodo Birds!!!

I recently received a custom order from a gal in the UK to make cuff links and matching tie pin with a picture of a dodo bird for her husband's 40th birthday. She describes her husband as being a rocker, guitar player, and a biker, yet has a soft side for dodo birds and tears up when he sees them on a documentary. I couldn't resist the request with the darling picture she sent me. Here is a picture of what I came up with. She says, "He's gonna blub like a big baby when he sees them!" She also said, "I think I may have started something in Wiltshire for Etsy, nobody I spoke to had heard of it before & they all started staring into space thinking of all the stuff they could buy."

Thanks for your request Dibs and hope your hubby LOVES them and doesn't get too emotional when he sees them!! LOL!

Lol! I love the cufflinks. And what a great image.

Here's a link to the plushies I made for this lovely buyer last week:
Felted Dodo

I am really pleased with how they came out. And I'll be web-watching with interest to see what other dodo-esque presents appear.
