The workshop I'll be teaching at Gather Here in Cambridge, MA, at the end of the month is fully enrolled and I'm getting excited to sew birds with everyone! We will be making a bird ornament, one of the projects that ended up getting cut from The Artful Bird due to space constraints.
Over the weekend I decided it might be fun to make a larger bird ornament so I enlarged the pattern somewhat and created this more substantial bird. I like this larger size!
For the workshop, I'll be bringing a selection of favorite vintage fabric scraps for us to dig through, and some embroidery hoops and paper ephemera for making backdrops for the birds like I've made here and here.
If you would like to sew a bird ornament, but won't be at the workshop, you can find a downloadable template and sewing instructions right here!
