Little Birds Book


This unique and creative book called Little Birds: 26 Handmade Projects to Sew, Stitch, Quilt & Love by Stash Books is the best bird crafting book ever! I'm not just saying this because I happen to be one of the contributors in the book. Honestly! Ok...maybe.

My project is titled A Bird In A Cage.  It's similar to my fabric birdcage, but the base is painted and decoupage with floral fabric motifs. To add to the birdcage's charm, red wooden beads are attached to the base as a stand. Also included in the project are directions and pattern pieces to make the bird.





I have quite a few favorites from the book.
 I love, love, LOVE, Samantha Cotterill's  Mildred the Dove with Baguettes...


Then there's Amy Adams' Fancy Peacock...




And who could overlook the Birdhouse by Abigail Brown...



Every bird deserves a happy home like this.

Eleanor Brice's Edward the Owl is a must make for me...




I could go on and on about this book since there are quilts, embroidery and even an apron - all bird themed.  Being a bird lover, it was the perfect book for me to be a part of. 

You can view all of the projects by watching this promo video.

The book is available here and here.

Have a great weekend!

What a cute book! I am torn between the bluebird wallet and that fancy peacock!

I want to learn embroidery, too, so one of the two embroidery projects would be fun to do, as well!
