birdie house

This little box has been a work in progress since the beginning of February but I had problems with the lid design so it was put to one side until I got a eureka moment. That came this morning when I realised that it would look much better with a roof rather than a four-sided pointed lid which was the original intention. Funny how the simplest ideas are often the best. Does it need a chimney now?

The box stands 4.5″ high at the gable end and the sides are 3″ square. The inner box is made from firm card covered with soft cotton fabric and then stitched to the felt. I also added a wire frame to give stability before stitching the felt on. You can see the original design and all four sides here.
