Q&A with Andrea Cuda

Ginger H. asked:
Love the feathers on top. How are they attached?
Andrea Cuda answered:
Thanks! I just made a string of "feathers" going: ch 7, sc 6, ch 4, sc 3, ch 10 and so on. So basically I just made a couple of chain stitches, then went back trough these with single crochet stitches, then some chains again (different number this time) and so on. Fastened off with a long tail and used this to attach the string of "feathers" starting from the very first stitch on the top of the bird's head, following the first stitches on the bird. Does that make sense? I'm doing another bird, I'll try and remember to make some photos when I'm at this part.
