My latest hooked bird....worked on last night until after 1 am....will finish tonight, I hope.
Today just might be another beach day with the ARTgirls! No coastal fog, it looks beautiful out over the ocean and if I don't have "mom duties" I'm off for more boogie boarding!
I got these three birds sewed up and stuffed. I leave the bottom open to add legs and feet, the next step. I make two types of legs...wool wrapped wire so they can stand up or wool stuffed with shoes and they hang on the wall. I then sew them into the bottom and close up the opening.
Here's the back side. The polka dot fabric is cotton flannel. The dark blue is felted wool.
And here is the opening on the bottom where I insert the legs.
And these are fabric painted birds that I have a project in mind for.
I always seem to have about 10 projects going on at once! Keeps life interesting, I'm never bored or depressed-too much art to do!
