I am so pleased that I was able
to get up to a bit of stitching
on the recent long weekend.
~ * ~
I was inspired by one of my new books....
Once the pattern was traced.....
I found the perfect vintage tablecloth
to use for the bird fabric....
I cut some rectangles out of the fabric,
then made my own legs and hanging loop,
rather than use ribbon like in the pattern.
I stitched on a small button for
an eye & knotted the legs to
make little feet....
I sewed it up, feet & loop in place
with right sides together....
I turned it out through the tail
then stuffed it with poly fill and lavender.
Once I sewed up the tail
it was ready to hang!
It is reporting time for me at school
so crafty moments are a bit sparse lately!!!
Hope you are finding the time to
do something creative and fun!
Happy week dear friends!
Also today I am joining:
at freckled laundry.
