Another Handmade Crafternoon, This Time with Birds

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

Went to another installment of the New York Public Library's Handmade Crafternoon series last weekend. The special guest was avian soft toy expert Abby Glassenberg, author of The Artful Bird.

The pattern provided was a bit small for my taste, so I just drew around it freehand and altered it. Loved the colorful scraps of batik they gave us to decorate our winged creatures!

Could also make a great Christmas tree ornament, of course, or Easter decor -- with some stuffed eggs, perhaps?
