My first Kagu.........

I had a request from somebody here to make a Kagu. It is a ground dwelling, flightless bird found only here and in Papua New Guinea. The bird is normally a grey colour but there also was a request to use a New Caledonia tea towels as the fabric. 
Now I have never made a bird softie before and certainly not one that had to ressemble something so unique but I don't think I did to badly. I tried to make it with it's plume up as often they run around with their feathers close to their bodies. They are much more interesting when they stand to attention!!
