Put a Bird on It

As soon as I saw Joel Dewberry's bird pin cushion pattern on The Diy Dish, I knew I had to make it.
One change I made, was to put batting in the wings so that I could free motion quilt them. I also put a strip of easy fluff chenille on the wings. Cute Fuzziness!!  A girl in my sewing club suggested using marbles in the bottom to help the bird stand up.  It turned out to be a great tip.
  Over all the pattern was easy to follow and fast to sew. And you can never have too many birds.

About Me

Welcome to Calico Cali Designs! I’m Kat, digitizer and sewing enthusiast. I learned how to digitize in 2010 from master digitizer Walter Floriani…it was an amazing experience. Soon instead of spending my time sewing, quilting and stitching out other people’s embroidery designs, I was sewing, quilting and stitching out my own embroidery designs. I created this blog, not only as a place to share my embroidery designs, but also as a place to share all the things I make, sew, paint, embroider, and create. You’ll see posts about my life, my studio, patterns I’ve sewn and products I’ve tested. I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them. Follow me on twitter . Hugs!! – Kat
