princess and the pea...


i am cutting some some of my favorite hand dyed and vintage wool felt today for a friend and sat my newest little birdie on top of the pretty stack.  she looks like the princess and the pea with all her mattresses doesn't she....

 a beauty shot~
princess is made using the same pattern as the wedding cake birdies, just using a heavy satin fabric for the body instead of wool. the fabric is actually a vintage coat lining, i just loved the taupe color and the heavy feel of the satin.  nothing goes to waste when i take apart an old skirt or jacket.  i use the linings to sew ruffles and even use the buttons and old metal zipper!   i sewed the pieces right sides together and then turned them right side out to stuff.  tiny bits of wool were cut for the wings and beak.  i added a little ornament string so she can hang or sit in her nest.


happy monday.  julie
