A bird in hand…

The bird as a design icon seems to be fading into the trends of Christmas past. There’s been a glut of fabric with birds on it, templates to create 3D birds and embroidered bird patterns on the market.

But while design trends come and go, twitchers will be around for ever. Which is why this was a perfect “gift for no reason” for one of my favourite bird watchers: MTM.

Made from a spool pattern out of shwe-shwe and 30s print fabric.

Cute enough I went and got the pattern, grin. My mom and I are both bird watchers, so I plan on giving her a bird for her bedside now that she is in a nursing home.

Thanks for sharing this.
