Hillary--Dressed in a little head scarf, she is ready for her next outing. Knobby knees, large feet, tail feathers and don't forget those eyelashes, complete our darling of the ostrich farm. Easy to manipulate--young and old alike will have little trouble helping Hillary come to life.
Hillary is a short legged ostrich only 20' tall, dressed in a scarf, sporting real ostrich feather tail. Her eyes are adorned with eyelashes. The fabric kit includes fabrics for body,neck,legs,feet and head, eyelashes and eyes, ostrich feathers and line.
You will still need some fiberfill, dowels and weights for the feet (suggestions are in the pattern), glue for the eyes and of course, general sewing items (scissors, needle, threads, sewing machine, tape measure).
