Fanciful Duck from Fabric Scraps

Some years ago I created a duck form that I made by molding an aluminum foil base and covering it with stucco.  I had thought of painting it.  Instead, I cut shapes from remnants of fused fabric and used a mini iron from Clover Needlecraft, Inc. to attach the snippets of fabric to the base.  After completely covering the duck form, I sandwiched batting between two pieces of blue, moiré fabric with one end slightly gathered to suggest moving water on which to sit the duct form.
