Little Birdies

Little Birdies

 

Last week I had a sewing project scheduled for each day in order to finish up the decorations for Reese’s Nursery. One of my favorite projects was this collection of little birds.

They make me smile every time I look at them. I’m planning on hanging a few of them in front of the birdhouses and they can act as a mobile over her changing table. The rest will be in different spots around the room.

I used scraps of Moda’s Vintage Modern line and then added ribbon loops for the wings. These little birds are just four inches wide and so simple to make! I used THIS tutorial and pattern from Lavender’s Blue.

It’s quite possible I’ll keep coming back and looking at these pictures (even though the real things are sitting across the room) because I like them so much.

 

Thanks for stopping by!
