Fantail Applique

Felici Self Striping Yarn from Knit Picks

Fantails are wonderful birds to watch. They have fly around quite energetically, flitting here and there. I wanted to capture it's distinct fanned tail in this applique.

You can read more about the Fantail here:

I also find the Maori meaning behind this bird interesting. The Fantail (Piwakawaka) is a messenger, bringing death or news of death from the gods. My sister and I always used to get concerned when one would fly inside. Thankfully it never amounted to anything.
