Budgie Key Chain

I think I have never posted about the key chain I have made a few months ago...
Made from a "Schleich" budgie in which I drilled a hole from back to belly (the Schleich company makes maaaaany little animals in different sizes), a few wooden beads, some stitching threads and a little hook. Love it. It holds the key for our garden door.

Thanks for coming over!



  1. That's a lovely key chain! Is it weather proof? The bird looks almost alife! Love the last photo! Is everybody over the stomach bug?

  2. That is SO cute! I would definitely smile every time I saw it :)

  3. What a beautiful little budgie, you have made a pretty key chain. I love budgies, my Bob the budgie is brilliant, he makes me laugh. The other night he had his head under his wing and he was talking away in his sleep. Cute :)

  4. Thank you for your loveley comments!
    Monika, I love too how the little bird looks so realistic, even has tiny claws :-) the chain isn't waterproof, it is made from embroidering thread and wooden beads, that's why I put it on the garden key that sits in the drawer most of the time and not on my normal key ring.
    And yes, we are over the stomach bug!

    Lolly, it does make me smile every time I see it! And I see it every time I open that drawer to get my keys or wallet out :-)

    Lucy, I think budgies are so beautiful birds, and love it if they start singing in the morning, which very early right now, and then those little sounds they make when they go to sleep. Lovely little creatures!
