Onto today's project...

I was just returning a visit to The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and happened upon one of her posts that featured a super cute bird pattern from Spool. (Check out the sidebar under free patterns.)

I decided that what better project could I do today, since I have nothing better to do with my time...(NOT!) I figure it will be a darling Christmas Ornament... or I could glue a few on a stick and hang it in my PRINCESSES room... or just make a few, because they are SOOOO CUTE!

Now... what did I do with that fabric?
AH here it is!

Now to trace and cut...  and sew...

40 min later...

Bent my needle :oP

A little stuffing... and they turned out CUTE!

    I love the birds, they turned out great! Who woud have known they were so easy to make!

  4. love the birds... you could make them out of black and they would be a perfect prim crow... you could also fill them with catnip for the kitties they love them...

    thanks so much for stopping by AJ and becoming a follower... I am on the hunt right now for some new material to work on and finish off the few things I already started... my real job interferes with my fun job... but one of them has to support the other habit...

    Have a great day... see you soon...
    Hugs Deb
