Here is a nice sewing project for the start of spring! 🙂
Duration: 1.5 -2 hrs
– Body Parts Template (download here-DIY Fabric Birds)
– Needle & Matching coloured threads
– Cotton stuffing
Start with these shapes and sew on the eyes, beak and wings.
You may follow the PDF example- Putting the Parts Together.
Tip: If time is limited, you can sew the wings on last and first put together the body.
Flip the bird over and start sewing the sides adjacent to the face together. When you are finished, sew on the back-bone of the bird, but leave a little hole. In the next step, you will use the hole to turn the bird inside out.
Your bird is now halfway done! You can put as much stuffing as you need through the hole and then sew the bottom edge together. Finally, add on the tail 🙂
