How to….Christmas Bird Garland

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Here is our second ‘time friendly’ project, for this you’d probably need a couple of hours altogether, but perhaps if you don’t have that time in one block you could cut the template and fabric in the evening and put together the garland in the day.  Here’s how…

Cut you chosen template out of card (we used a simple bird design, but you could do Christmas Trees, mini stockings or hearts – the list is endless!).  Select the fabrics you want to use, scraps come in very handy here, cut 2 pieces of fabric for each bird.

Place the fabric right sides together and sew around leaving 1/2cm seam, leave 5cm gap for turning right way.   So you get a nice shape, snip around any curves or points, careful to avoid your seam.   Turn right side out and stuff with wadding.  Hand sew to close.  Finally stitch your birds to ric rac or ribbon and voila!

We used our Scandinavian Christmas Bundles for the garland, unfortunately we’re out of stock at the moment, but they should be back in the shop by Friday.

Finally its here, another rare bird has been spotted on our shores – Frippery has arrived!!  Although unlike the Eastern Crowned Warbler Frippery comes in 3 different colours!  We love this design and it looks great with the co-ordinating dots, go on,  treat yourself before it flys out of the shop.

Bird Tunic

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

My niece is modelling a very sweet tunic top made by my mother-in-law (thank you Rosemarie!).  The pattern used was from the first issue of the new magazine SEW.  We used Feathered Friends Yellow for the main body and Apple Dot Orange for the trim.  Its quite a simple tunic to make and looks very summery!
