I have had this little bird on my mind for the longest time! I've wanted to draw out a pattern and try it and this is what I ended up with!! It's not perfect but I'm loving the chubbiness of it and what's so cool is that I added a river stone to the inside before sewing the opening closed so he's a bit weighted. I placed a little pin about where his eye will be but I'm thinking of decorating him now....maybe with a little vintage lace? I need to change the pattern just a little bit here and there but he does look like what I had envisioned ~ plus drop cloth fabric isn't perfect for EVERY project, it frays pretty easily and that's not good when working with small pattern pieces.
I wanted to share with you a really neat magazine I found today. Now, I'm not a big Martha fan as her look is a little to stark and mod for me as I love more of a romantic/cluttered :) look but this magazine is chock full of ideas for Christmas gifts! I bought it especially because of the lamb pattern! I love lambs and am thinking this one would be so precious for the grandbaby!! Oh and we find out in only TWO weeks if we're having a boy or a girl!
I hope I showed you enough to give you an idea of all that's inside. And to be honest, I don't even remember there being any ads in it at all!
Sharing neat magazines with your friends?
It's a good thing! :)
I hope you have a great Saturday,
