The other week when I was going through my patterns picking out what I would like to make I wasn’t thinking of any sort of theme, but I ended up with one … ‘Birds!’
To start with I made another version of ‘Mother Hen & her 4 Chickadees’ …
This time I have hand embroidered some little flowers on Mother Hens wings, plus when I cut out the fabric I lined up the eye placement with flowers. I have also embroidered around part of the flower to outline the eyes as well as used black felt for the very centre of the eyes. Mother Hen & her little Chickadees are currently available at Etsy, just click on the image to go straight them. 🙂
I’m always looking for new patterns to use, this week I found one from ‘While She Naps‘ (Abby Glassenberg), the Pattern name is ‘Stella the Owl’.
I love how the mummy owl can snuggle her baby in her wings 🙂
And the last one … for this week 😉
I have one more to be photographed & listed next week, but here’s a preview … she will also be available at http://www.madeit.com.au.
These cute owls have velcro machine stitched to their wings so they can snuggle their babies close to them. The eye patches are hand appliqued with blanket stitch & the eyes have been stitch in daisy stitch. Both mummies & babies beaks are made of felt & babies eyes are also felt; both are made from 100% cotton & synthetic toy filling.
My last one for this week is a bird of a different type, this time we have a mechanical bird … aka a aeroplane. This little guy is a brand new pattern from ‘Melly & Me’ – ‘Percy & Herb’ (Herb the helicopter will be with us next week 😉 )
I love how he has come together with his colourful -100% cotton – body & bright red wings. He even has little felt wheels. His face is hand appliqued felt & there are plenty of hand appliqued felt windows for his passengers to look out of. 🙂
Well, thats all my news for this week. 🙂 It’s time to get back to my sewing desk to create more goodies to share with you next week you.
