Lil' Bluebird

I searched for a pattern to make this shape bird to match my logo, but I couldn't find one that worked.  So, I set out to create one of my own.  I think he turned out rather cute.  The bird would make a cute garland strung together on a ribbon.  Would also be a really cute mobile for a nursery.
