Merry Christmas! Steve and I are down in VA visiting his dad and mom. We are enjoying the sunshine and mild temperatures and of course the delicious food! MmmMmm
I wanted to save this post for Christmas day as it is a "Partridge in a Pear Tree"!
I got a bird pattern from Spool (same place I got my sewing machine snuggy pattern) and decided to use some of my left over pear fabric (from one of my many aprons!) to make a fun ornament for the tree- the tree we don't have up this year :-(
The pattern was pretty simple- although I did get stuck on step 2 when it asked me to sew the 1 side of the belly to the outside fabric but starting at the tail- lining it up was not working out!! But with a little trial and error I got it (this could have just been from my sewing inexperience- you might be just fine!).
But just in case...I took some pictures along the way so you have a visual!
I braided some craft floss together and made a loop at the top of the bird to hang it. I also had the hubs search out back for the perfect twig for my little birdie to sit on. I hot glued it and hand sewed it on.
It turned out adorable....even Lincoln loved it!!
The whole thing took about an hour (from start to finish)...not bad for a quick little project!
enjoy your xmas day <3
