My Creative Space


Trying my hand at funny little birds from a gorgeous book I bought a while ago called little birds by Stash Books. The more I sew and make the more I prefer hand sewing so this little book is perfect for those kinds of projects. She is a very wonky bird and I need to adjust the pattern as I think the head is too big or the body is too small or maybe I put it together incorrectly. I handmade the felt myself and the fabric is a Liberty Favourite. I think her name is Lovely Lopsided Liberty .

  1. What a cutie, I absolutely love the felt and fabric choices and I'm sure Lucy will tweet much happiness to those who meet her.

    Happy day!

  2. She's adorable! Just like a newborn with a big, out of proportion head LOL. I'm amazed that you made the felt yourself - I never would have thought to do that.

  3. How sweet is this little bird...Love your hand made felt...such an adorable colour

  4. she may be a bit lopsided but I think shes quite cute :)

  5. super dooper cute!! i want that book and i dont mind handsewing will have to invest in it.
    love your colour choice too

  6. Lovely bird. I have the same book and really like it. I've made the same bird in red. I have it standing on my mantle piece. I love that you made the felt yourself- something I would love to learn how to do. Cx

  7. So cute! I have that book too, got it for Christmas two years ago and I STILL haven't made anything from it, how dreadful. I'm motivated to now!

  8. Very sweet. Looking forward to seeing more... Lisa x
