Bird Advent, days 23-25


I did it - just wrapped up my final 3 birds today - it's been a lot of gorgeous fun making these from the Snowbird pattern from Larissa Holland. You know, I wouldn't say that any of these stitch up very fast - I spent at least 4-6 hours hand sewing each one - but it's such a fun process that the hours really fly by.

Anyhow, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, surrounded by family and by everyone you love.

Bird Advent, days 19-20

Bird Advent

It is so odd, making these snow birds - I am so entertained by the infinite variety of little changes I can make, that I really feel like I could make these forever!

Although photographing these is tricky, it's always fun to see the results. I'm really looking forward to snapping a big photo with all of them together...

Bird Advent, days 12-13

Bird Advent

I wasn't ever planning to do blue and red - it kind of just happened, and I'm loving them.

Bird Advent, days 8-11

Bird Advent

I completed these earlier this year - my favorite thing about photographing them as I finish is noticing all their little quirks and details.

This all-white bird is one of my favorites so far. Maybe I'll make a few variations on this... :)

I finished these two in January - my favorite part is still the black and white houndstooth felt on the back side - very cute, no?

Bird Advent, days 1-4


This year flashed by in record time for me! It's hard to believe I was making these beautiful birds 1 whole year ago, but there it is, the calendar, telling me what's what. These were made using the lovely Snow Bird pattern by Larissa Holland.

This holiday weekend I pulled out the birds, and started on these 4, half-finished and literally calling out to be sewn together. A marathon Gilmore Girls-watching later, I sewed these up and crafted another three.

Since I'm halfway there, I've decided to craft 1 a day for Advent - I can definitely crank out 25 of these beauties. Hope you enjoy them as I share them. :)
