As you may know, my wonderful grandmother passed away in August. She was an avid bird watcher and bird lover. I used to bring her birds I found who had been hurt somehow, and she would find a way to nurse them back to life. She was amazing in so many ways, and this was just another one.
I have found that since her passing, I can’t get enough of bird designs. Bird prints on fabric, bird prints on paper, stuffed birds, you name it. I found inspiration in a fabric a few days ago, and thought I could make a little birdie out of felt. So here he is…
I have made a few others, but this is the only one that I made and took a nice picture of. My Mom wanted one, and these were the colors she chose. (Her favorite color is green.)
I am thinking about making some and adding them to my Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/TinkerTailorMommy. The problem is that I have no idea how much to charge for it. It takes me more than 2 hours to hand sew the entire little guy… I guess I need to do some research! I’m also thinking about creating a tutorial and maybe selling it on Etsy as a download… The problem is, what if people then only download the file and don’t buy my little birdies? Oh well… I guess I have some decisions to make, huh?!
