Holiday Shopping is Hideous

There are many advantages to choosing Hideous Birds for holiday gifts:
1. You don't have to go to the mall. You can get them right here.
2. Each bird is hand crafted and one of a kind.
3. They have cool names like Edgeworyth Van Der Lar and Shade Halloway.
4. Hideous Birds are environmentally friendly, made from recycled materials.
5. You can collect as many as you like! This is great for those of us who like to collect sets of similar items.
6. See the paisley material on Addergoole Smith's belly? Back in the early eighties, that was a favorite shirt of mine. I have a hard time letting go of things sometimes. Even though the shirt was clearly never going to fit me again, I kept it hanging in my closet; it held so many memories I couldn't part with it. Karen made the shirt into a Hideous Bird for me. The same material will be used in other birds, so nothing goes to waste.
7. If you know someone whose special interest is parrots, they will love these birds. They are just the right size to carry along, too.
8. Hideous Birds are very reasonably priced at $18.00 each.
If you have fabric you would like to be included in a bird, you will need to place your Christmas orders soon: contact Karen at
Pre-made parrots can be ordered here, and you can see more examples here.


  1. "Edgeworyth Van Der Lar"

    Yeah, that's a cool name. And those birds are so CUTE!

  2. What a great idea. I love them.

  3. "He's not hideous; he's my brother!"


Squawk at me.
