Mini~Snippets: Little Birdies!

The free tutorial for this adorable little pincushion is now available HERE.

#littlebirdiepincushion
More ideas:  
  • Make a sachet by adding a little lavender or a few drops of essential oil to the stuffing.   
  • Stitch a folded ribbon or string into the center seam between the wings and you've got an easy Christmas ornament.
  • Glue a hair clip to the bottom and clip it to random places.
  • Glue your Little Birdie to a large button base for more stability.
  • Insert a 1" magnet with the stuffing then stick your Little Birdie to random places.
And here's how you can make 146 at a time...
UPDATE:  See full instructions to make a flock HERE.
292 wings
Glue 8 sets of wings to each 2-1/2" strip for bodies, stitch to 2-1/2" strips for head/tail, then cut apart.
Fold each bird in half, insert beak and chain piece.  Ready to go to Quilt Market!
And how to meet quilty friends... here are just a few snapshots.
