Step 1: Cutting shapes
One bicycle inner tube
Dark Grey machine yarn (polyester stays better when the crow is placed in the garden)
Scissors ( not the best textile scissers,as they will go blunt)
sewing machine ( preferably with double transport)
strong metal gardening wire about 3 mm thick.
Something to cut the metal wire
Start cutting out 8 "drop"shaped parts for the body and 8 circle shapes for the head. The body parts should be about 16 cm long. The head parts are 6 cm. All parts are cut on the edge so the foto shows them folded in half
Step 2: Bodyparts
About sewing innertyre: You are lucky when your sewing machine is able to grab the material from underside and on top to every next stich.( double transport). The yarn has a tendency to make loops. Set the yarn tension to a higher number! Don't use leather needles, but normal all purpose. Number 90 or 100 works best.
