Look what came to visit me!
A flock of birdie pincushions that are just adorable. I made them as "little gifts" for each person taking the class I taught on Saturday. They are from the pattern "Petite Alouette" from The Teacher's Pet with two modifications: eyes and a "nest." I sewed beads on for eyes(not shown here). The "nest" is a 1/2" washer that I found in the tool box. I covered it with a gathered circle of fabric. Then, I used Fabric Fusion fabric glue to adhere the washer to the bird. Now, they are all well behaved and not falling down.
Then today, Lynda and I made this "flock" to be door prizes at our quilt meeting tomorrow. After filling them with crushed walnut shells, we glued on some googly eyes. They are sooo cute, I wish I could keep them all!
This little girl is happily sitting on top of my sewing machine, watching over my fabric treasures. At least until tomorrow!
Til next time,
