I finished this wreath a few weeks ago, and got it hung up (thanks Chris!!). It is so adorable, and I wanted to share it with you.
I found the pattern on this awesome website called Spool.
You can find the pattern on the right hand side, called Bird Pattern. I also bought a fabric bundle from them. I found them here. They have lots of fun fat quarters, in so many shades. It was hard to pick!!
Then I made the birds on the sewing machine. The patter was easy to follow, and it was a great little project for a new sewer like me.
Then I bought a branch wreath at Joanns. It was really cheap, maybe $10 or so, and some little pink flowers from Michaels. I hot glued all of the flowers on the wreath. I grouped them two or three together, in little patches.
Then I hung up the birdies by sewing a piece of fishing wire through their backs. Chris and I hung it up over Ellie’s crib using a simple hook and some more fishing wire. Making the wreath level was a bit tricky, but we figured it out.
It is so much better than this cheap mobile I had on her crib, and it goes with her bedding. She loves it, and gets excited when we walk into her room and see it!
I also finished this sweet little doll for Ellie’s Birthday next month. What do you think??
I linked up my birdie wreath with these linky parties...
