Here are the separate wings for my ugly duckling fabric project. They are fully embellished and bound, using a bias cut 1/2"(finished) binding. I've only done one other bias binding; on a double wedding ring quilt restoration. I had to look up in a book how to cut the binding, and I still did it wrong. It fought me all the way, but I eventually prevailed.
The next thing will be to add a body piece to attach the wings together, then the "sleeve" on the back of the upper wings for the dowel to slide through for hanging.
The lower left wing (2nd pic) has a cute little pewter hummingbird charm in the purple patch, and the red patch in the upper right wing (3rd pic) has a birdhouse charm with a tiny little bird dangling off of it. I think this is the first time I've ever used charms, even though I've been collecting them for a long time. I couldn't figure out how to attach them other than just sewing them on, and that always looked to me like they were just stuck there. For the birdhouse, I attached it with a few daisy stitches in a sunburst pattern (like the sun is rising over the roof), and for the hummer, I sewed him on, then added some stitches that match the ones on the seam treatment (his favorite flower to feed from).
The upper right wing also has a spider and her web in the turquoise patch, with a seam treatment of flies (so she'll never be hungry).
