Pottery Barn Bird

You might recognize this bird from the Christmas ornament collection from Pottery Barn this past season. Every time I would go into the store during the holidays, this bird caught my eye:
WHAT? Only $.97?
So, she came home with me to be transformed into a Valentine decoration. I cut out 4 fabric hearts and 2 from batting:
Before I stitched them together, I inserted a thin jute rope:
I attached the top of the rope to the bird's belly:

A cute little scrappy, country decoration to add to my Valentine's decorations! I also thought she might be cute with a "bird treat" hanging below, but we have had snow lately and I didn't want her to get wet!
