However, I really liked this bird idea, and wasn't going to give it up that easily! So I searched the web, and found a blog from named lifeingrace, which not only tells you how to make these cute little birds, but actually gives you a pattern to follow!
So I bought some super cute fabric and got started. I think they turned out really, really well. They are super cute and I love them!
Of course, once the creative juices got started, I just couldn't stop! I started making bird ornaments (sans feet) and giving them to some friends and family as Christmas presents. And yes, for those of you counting, that does mean that I was doing my "lovebird" search before FH actually proposed. What can I say? I like to plan ahead. :o)
I still have plenty of birds to make for the wedding, but thankfully I have plenty of time. Who knows? Maybe after this is all over you'll see my birds on etsy . . . but maybe for a bit cheaper! :o)
