Red Finch White Finch


Please welcome "Red Finch White Finch" to the Flying Star Toys collections. I'm very excited to be finally launching these friendly little birds. Red Finch White Finch are a set of two hanging toys. Hang them together, apart or share the pair with someone special.


The subtle design of Red Finch White Finch is a combination of silhouette work and origami folding. This design makes it seems like there is another set of birds when you turn them over. You can enjoy them both. Red Finch White Finch are happy to be friends for ever, no matter what their differences.


Made with woven cotton/linen blend fabrics and hand embroidered with cotton sashiko thread, Red Finch White Finch are 18.5 cm (7 1/4 inches) from head to tail tip. Hanging thread is linen yarn, eyes are black glass beads.

They're very sweet and stately - the origami effect gives them a little something special.

Exactly wot Friederike! said.

:) I knew one day the six month I spent designing and making origami would pay off.....but perhaps that is a story for another time ;)

The shape of the body, which is not so clear in the photos, is such a delicate "bird" curve too...I was very pleased with this design.

Djbebe, thanks for dropping by, please feel welcome here :) I like the way you've phrased "sweet and stately" they strike me that way too.
