I must confess, I just took down the heart shaped wreath I made for Christmas (http://thefeverishfeltist.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/felt-christmas-decorations.html) yesterday. Arguably, given its shape there was no reason to take it down before Valentine's Day, but it was really time for a change... Not a big one though...
I removed the Christmas embellishments and added more spring-appropriate decorations. I used a baby girl dress I bought at a charity shop and a bit of pink felt.
The dress had a bow on it, which I kept. The thread came undone as I cut it off so I had to stitch it to keep it intact, but It was still much nicer than anything I could have made by myself:
I sewed the bird from felt and added buttons for eyes
I removed the hem and used it to hang the bird.
I also removed the belt bit from the front of the dress and used it as the ribbon behind the bow.
|I still need to remove the stitches that held the beak in place...|
Happy Spring Everyone!
