This border features a Parrot, sitting on a leaf. The first picture shows the basic unit (large format). You mirror this pattern to produce the final picture. The second and third pictures (in a smaller format) show two ways that you can do this. I've added a border to produce a neat result. The fourth picture shows how you can repeat the pattern; this can obviously be extended as far as you wish.

The pattern of the parrot by itself is on a separate page.
