I practiced the method this morning, and though I didn't get exact geese due to my nominal abilities on the sewing machine, the results were darn near perfect. Half my problem is that I worked with the smallest geese; I think next time that I do them I'll shoot for something a little larger.
I'd seen this done on Youtube where someone constructed geese through the various methods. The comment made there was that this was by far the easiest and quickest method. I know I wasn't working for speed this morning, but found it relatively simple. Very cool!
