As I mentioned I'm away this week, so hopefully the schedule thingy will be posting this. I was looking for a little make that I could leave as thank you gift to the friends who are letting us stay at there cottage and I found just the one, at the wonderful Attic 24. It's perfect as I do love all things birdie.
Easter is a big deal for my friends who own the cottage so I decided I would make one of Lucy's Birdie decorations to leave behind as part of a thank you gift, that they can add to there Easter decorations,
As always I found Lucy wonderful tutorials so easy to follow and used some Stylecraft Special DK from my stash in lovely spring colours.
First I made a round
Then the beak and wings
Then attached them, to my flat as a pancake looking bird adding some cute flower buttons for the eyes.
Then I folded my birdie in half, see he looks much more like a birdie now !!
Following Lucy's tutorial I made a chain to hang my birdie, a flower and
Some dangly leggies with flower button feet and after a little stuffing
Ta- Dah my little birdie thank you gift was complete.
If you want to make a little Attic 24 birdie then you can find the tutorial 'here' . If not I recommend popping over to Attic24 anyway as it a wonderful world of colour to escape into. The birdie was lots of fun to make, it took me about four days going a little over my normal 10 minutes a day craft pacing time, but as I've been bed resting lots this week in preparation for my holiday, it's been the perfect little make to keep my occupied.
