I kind of love making stuffed things: pincushions, toys, umm... I guess that's it. Pincushions and toys. I started toy-making a year ago, when I needed to make a gift for my cousin's 4-year-old daughter, Kailee:
click here, you can see a photo of Oliver sucking his thumb with the bird on his head. Which is where a bird like this belongs, of course!
Elvie's bird, which matches a pair of bloomers I also made. Both were sewn about seven months before Elvie was born.
The pattern is from an older issue of BHG Quilts and More. (I wish I could tell you which issue!!) They recommend using fleece but I didn't, obviously. Prints are much more fun!
