Yoriko was kind enough to create a pair of fsl parrot earrings to go with a parrot I appliqued on the back of a blouse. The parrot is made up of the various shades of suede and suede like fabric, vine trim I happened to pick up a while ago on a whim. The parrot earrrings were a perfect match to the parrot colors. I didn't realize that using more than 1 colour in a fsl design was more difficult until I asked Yoriko if she could do the 3 colours. She, of course, came through with the perfect parrots. If you want your own pair they are for sale on her web site. The test parrots are on the pocket. I posted part of this project earlier and not knowing how to do it correctly some people thought the parrot was an embroidery but alas it was an applique from Sulky.

Even if applique it is stunning. I have a friend who would follow you everywhere trying to talk you out of that blouse....LOL

Thank you.

Dear Bdrouin, I also thought it was an embroidery! Maybe an embroider one would look very heavy, so I really like the applique! Beautifully done!!! Once again, thank you so much for posting this, it was such a joy working with that FSL. Love, Yoriko

Your earrings were my first fsl. I can see their appeal. I will be doing more of them. Once again thanks for taking on task of the earrings.

Thank you. It took a bit of time to round up the right colours in the right fabrics. It's taken me about 3 years to get them together and then to get get it on the blouse.
