I used to make this little bird when I was a child and I had forgotten about her. Just recently she visited me in a dream and whats to come out -so here she is, My Little Paper Dove Broach. She could also be a great gift topper instead of a bow - but I like to wear her as a broach on my vintage black dress at dinner parties.
Next loop down the top or north 2 strips to the south position - tape to table ( easier to work with if taped to table - don't use to much tape - this is just to hold down while we weave ). Then loop over the south 2 strips to the north positions. Now you have formed 4 loops to start the weaving process again. With the east 2 strips weave them through the 4 loops * over 1 under 1*, then follow with the west 2 strips. Once finished you should have the body formed. Your bird is on it's back - we will flip it over in the next step.
OK here is the tricky part. We are now going to weave the strips around to form the head and tail. Continue to use the over 1 under 1 method and weave the strips around to the sides of the bird. The north 2 strips will weave to the right 2 loops - weave the eas strips to the left loops - the four strips will meet together to form the head of the bird.
Repeat on the other side. South 2 strips will weave to the right 2 loops while the west strips will weave to the left 2 loops.
