These little birdies are part of a surprise I'd hoped to complete by May 1...looks like mid-May will have to do. I got the idea from a Sew Mama Sew! tutorial by Kasja Wikman, and had to whip up a few. And then a few more. And I couldn't stop. After I finished the first dozen you see here, I made about 50 more.  Obsess much?  But just wait until I show you the result...check back next week!

I made all of them from findings in my scrap basket and cheap value-priced ribbon, and the bit of stuffing is from cut up batting scraps - those little pieces that are too small or skinny even to use for fabric coasters.  My own little twist is that each birdie has a name under the wing:

They're all living in my sewing room now, but will be flying off this weekend.


  1. Hey! So... You won my Sew mama sew giveaway and I emailed you but haven't heard back - hopefully it wasn't spammed but if it was, I'm trying to get you this way!
