There was a time in the not so distant past where I could not crochet or knit anything that was not a square or a rectangle. I finally got over that block only to find that it has reared its ugly head again in my sewing projects. Today I tried to make these very simple birds from Spool Sewing.
The little one was my first attempt - it was a little easier once I enlarged the pattern but I am still having a hard time getting their faces to look like faces. I have this great Geisha material I want to use to make them for Easter but I don't want to waste it until I am satisfied with the finished toy.
I would love to know what your favorite softie pattern is - send me a link or the name of a book you love. I think I might give this bird a go tomorrow.
