I'm still recovering from the stomachflu I got after easter. I'm getting tired fast and still feel a bit weak from time to time, but I'm getting stronger every day. I haven't had the energy to do any project (because I have to clean up my space first, lol) but I've been colouring a bit out on the balcony in the wonderful sunshine we've been having.
Since I don't want you to totally grow tired of me (I know how boring it is to check blogs that are never updated) I thought I'd show you what I made for my secret easter swap person.
I sew two birds and a birdhouse from the latest Tilda Finnanger book. I wanted to make the birds "lovebirds" and the house to be their lovehouse. I used fabrics and colours that would match. I made one bird red with turquoise details and the other one turquoise with red details. And finally the house an even mix of both.
I used beads so you can hang the birds and house and I also attached metalwire to the base of the birds so they can be assembled on a birdhouse for instance. The wire can be easily pulled out. I also managed to find some metal charms:
I thought the gift was quite thought through even if it wasn't the most advanced one. But concidering this was my first stuffed animal project I think I did quite well. Now I'm off colouring some more and hopefully joining some challenges. Hope you'll come back ;)
