Disney’s Orange Bird

I had a customer request a felted version of Disney’s Orange Bird, and I admit I had to Google it. Being a pretty avid fan of Disney’s world of animals, I was surprised that one had managed to escape my notice. But here was Orange Bird, a creation by Disney for the Florida Citrus Commission back in 1970. Since I was born in 1971 and am not nor have ever been a resident of Florida, I see why it escaped my attention.

So as you can see, the head is actually a round orange and the wings are leaves. Below are the results of my felting….it has a wire armature in the body as well as the leaves.
