Tweet Tweet..........

                           
                 I am sewing birds. And I can't stop.........
But come on!!! Are they not the cutest?!!!

It all started when I joined a pincushion swap over at Threadbias
 I went on the google machine looking for inspiration........
and there it was. 
It is pretty easy to make. So ....Why make just one???
I will confess my hand sewing is for the birds 
(pardon the pun). I try ........ 

I started with a basket of scraps. And the pattern.


Trying to match up fabrics for cute lil' birds.
Then I sewed them up on the machine.
Stuffed them and pinned wings and tail in place.


Then hand sew to finish........


One lil' girlie bird done.....
many to go:)



Have a fun weekend " Peeps" !!!!


Update!

I have gone mad..... I have made 11 of these. For no good reason really!!!

Maybe Christmas ornaments?

My cat Merlin likes them. Maybe a cat toy :)

More pics!!
