bird on a towel

Well, birds actually!  I made these for my sister-in-law for Christmas and think I might have to make some for me!!! 


A couple of weeks ago Sue and I had a play date at her house and she got out a little wooden ornament of a bird which we used as a template with card/grungepaper.  Neither of us got the project finished but I decided the shape was rather a nice one to use on a towel.  I used some William Morris patterned fabric I got in the summer, and added different eyes to my birds.  What I'm most impressed with however is how neat the back turned out!!! [Although you're probably not going to see this very well on a the nearly white blog background].


I will get the grungeboard version finished soon.  Need to get the wire out for the tail feathers and legs :)
