Catalog Sunday

Spiegel 1945 this Catalog Sunday

My parrot shirts!

Hello everyone!

Hope you all had a great Mother's day and your week is going well.
I've been busy sewing about 65 units for a small production, working on patterns, and doing some illustration as well. Whew!

In between all of that I made these tiki inspired shirts for a friend who is going to program the parrots to say witty and funny things. You know, like you do.

The goal was to make the wings be able to flap under the shirts, which I kinda did, but the range of the flappage wasn't as wide as I assumed the wings moved when I had the model to base the shirt from.

I began with a template I made and worked out as many issues as I thought I'd run up against.
