Birds and pouches


Birds and pouches, originally uploaded by soja.

And here are the birds from Joelle Hoverson's "Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts". They came out a little wonky, my fault, where I was having problems with the tension and having to unpick and resew the material got a little chewed and the filling was a bit lumpy, (filling taken from a cushion...). They are still pretty cute.

I love these! I've been wanting to start making stuffed toys. IKEA fabric is great for this sort of thing!

Thanks Sarah! I love the Ikea fabric too, it's cotton or linen, I love the designs and colours, it's cheap enough that it isn't too much of a disaster if it doesn't work out. It can be a bit thick though for, some of these birds were a bit tricky to turn right-side out!
