My fabric birds and their adventures!

My creative urge on the weekend led me to making some fabric birds. I made a pair, blue and pink.

The pattern I used for the birds was from Spool, you can download it here. After making one the other week, I tweaked the pattern to have a more rounded head and put in a felt beak.

After I made them I let them fly around to explore their surroundings. Here is where they flitted.









After receiving some lovely rain yesterday, I let them out in the back garden to take a drink from our bird bath.
 After their adventures it was time to put them in their resting place.
This morning I let them inside again, and as I type this post, I have two little birdies watching me!
I hope you enjoyed following my birds adventures. I did make something else on the weekend too that included ruffles, but I'll keep that for my next post.

I'm joining Inspiration Friday at the Picket Fence and

Your birdies are absolutely adorable and look so great in that birdcage.

My oops recipe was supposed to be baked doughnuts. It sounded easy enough, but I knew when I was mixing it up, that it didn't seem stiff enough and was looking more like a muffin mix-- but obviously, that didn't even work out. The blogger who posted it, actually had popped them out of the tins, and dipped them in butter and then a sugar/cinnamon mix -- but mine weren't popping out at all even though I greased the muffin tin. Oh well :/

Hope you've had a great day. Tammy
