April Free Bird Pattern is Here!

Have you been to the website?  What's keeping you?  The new Free pattern is there waiting for you!  These fun, funny, funky little birds will put a smile on your face!  Like their sister patterns, they're fast & easy, and use the same supplies as the previous ones.  OK, so close your eyes - don't peek! - and I'll show you . . . . . .

They're made with batting sandwiched between fabric for both body and wing, eye is fused in place and the beak, topknot (rick rack or pompom trim) & hanger are sewn in with one outside line of stitching. It's superfast!  Buttons make them even cuter.   And their legs are just poked through the body.  They dangle and move!

Write a note on the back with a Micron permanent pen in a contrasting color!  If the fabric design lends itself to it, just write around the designs.  Then add a little Bird to a Birthday gift!

Make them bright like we did or in a soft color for a baby gift!  Make a baby quilt or tote bag for a shower and make one of these from the same fabrics to add to the outside of the package as a keepsake.  There's an optional tail, too, in the pattern!

This one looks right at home in this Easter Basket!  Can you see his dangly legs?  As in the Bunny pattern last month, you can trace the pattern from the opposite side and some of your Birds will be going the other direction.  You can download it from the website or download right here  April Bird Pattern, and no waiting!

We're working on a new qult design using Moda's PB&J fabric by Basic Grey!  We think you'll like it, so keep an eye out right here.  Meantime we'll post the next Free pattern in time for May, with more right here in between!

Always,

Pat
