- cotton fabric 2 pieces of 4″ x 4″ = 10 cm x 10 cm

- yellow gummed paper for beak (I didn’t have any yellow fabric so I used a tiny piece of that gummed paper I love so much! It’s so useful in so many projects, both sewing and crafts)
- fabric scissors
- craft scissors to cut the paper
- fabric marker
- rice, crushed walnuts or barley
- sewing machine
