Piwakawaka - Fantail Enamel Pin

We love our checky little Fantail, she is so smart wearing her woolly knitted hat.
Designed and made in New Zealand with bright nickle plated with enamel infills.
Backed with two pin and clutch fittings.

Pin measures 45mm by 30mm.

There is a tradition with knitters of collecting pins and enamel brooches for project bags to note where you have travelled and the craft fairs you’ve attended. I love the idea of a ‘badge of honour’ to set apart the knitting community, so have produced a delightful bird brooch that you can pin to your favourite jersey, jacket or tote. Available now is the friendly fantail with a wooly beanie. 

'The New Zealand fantail is a small and energetic little bird that swoops around making cheeping noises. It has a long tail that spreads out like a fan and loves feasting on spiders and beetles. This cheeky little bird is a unique icon of New Zealand!'

The Cheeky Little Fantail by Pieta Rose Craig (11)

The cheeky little fantail,
Doing loop the loop.
The cheeky little fantail,
Going for a swoop.

The cheeky little fantail,
Doing a dive.
The cheeky little fantail,
Flying past a bee hive.

The cheeky little fantail,
Spreading out her fan.
The cheeky little fantail,
Yes she can!
