birds who are the secrets of living" - e.e. cummings.
So as I mentioned yesterday, while Satch was napping I sewed a dozen of these birdies to put on our Xmas tree. I should also tell you that because I'm not very good at sewing, Satch thought my first bird was a dolphin. I don't know what I did wrong, but the first one I made out of vintage bark cloth scraps which was a bit heavy. The rest of the flock I made from scraps of vintage hankies that I had laying around. Still, when Robert came home yesterday he said, "What's with all the fish?".
Here's the free pattern!
Satchel's friend R is celebrating her 3rd birthday so I'm going to try to make her this bird mobile. Satch has declared that he wants one too, so I better get to work.
See you Monday!
