First I started something else, which I will post after completion. It didn't use much of the fat quarter, so I then made this bird, which also did not use much of the fabric. It was fun to make and came together very quickly!
I was inspired by the beautiful birds and excellent instructions on And So It Begins.
The original pattern came from Spool Sewing. The pattern is on the sidebar.
I made it as a Christmas ornament, but I'm going to see if my almost 11-month-old wants to play with it. If so, he can have it. I can always make more!
