First it was the heat, this week I had a summer bug or something, so still doing lap projects for now.
Last month I made a penny with wools, from a new pattern I made. I wanted to try it in fabrics, so this was the perfect project to use scraps from my basket.
I wanted a scrappy antique look, so just grabbed fabrics and started cutting and sewing them on. This will be a present for a swap I am doing, so I used walnut and java spray to antique it.
I decided to make some matching birds to go with it. I took scraps and sewed them together, in a crazy quilt style.
Then I made templates with freezer paper and cut out the shapes with that. I did one dark side and one light, so she can use the side she likes best. This is a quick and easy method to make ornaments as christmas gifts, you can use cookie cutter shapes or simple applique shapes in your books.
