Sunday Update

Well, not quite as promised but I have a few things to show you.  I was pretty busy yesterday between cleaning and sewing.  I managed to make a few things one of them still needs his wings but other than that he's complete.

First I will start off with this vintage bird cage I bought at a Goodwill a little while back for only $2.00.  It needs a little bit of TLC, but I love it anyways.  I figured since it was going to be on display in my home it needed some little birds to go in it, and what better little birds than homemade ones.  The colors of the material that I made them out of are so bright and refreshing I love them.  The one with the blue back with touches of pink and white is the male bird (I know I know I sound like a little girl with a new baby doll) and his name is Max.  The one with the pink and yellow and blue back is the female and her name is Molly.  They are going to look so great when I get them perched in that cage I can hardly wait.

Next is this little flower pin I made out of material with squares and rectangles printed on it.  It reminds me of something from my childhood I just can't put my finger on what yet.  No I just need to find the perfect thing to pin it to. I also made a rose out of the left over petals that I had already sewed up and didn't need for my pin, but I forgot to take a better photo of it.

And finally I found a great tutorial while surffing the web yesterday for a little owl stuffed toy and decided I had to make one to sit on my desk.  He still needs his wings, I will be finishing him up this afternoon.  This is my version of him, but you can see her version when you follow the link below. 

I hope you've enjoyed all of these photos and projects and I hope you can make your own owl to sit on your desk or to even cuddle up with.

Happy Crafting!!
