I am completely addicted to buying  fabric. And once I buy some, cutting into it is so hard! But of course the end result is always worth the initial trauma.

I’ve just finished cutting out a ton of chest pieces for the Song Birds, using some great new fabrics. The brown is actually a pair of vintage pants that I bought just for these little birds, adorable! The pretty little blue floral is vintage bed sheeting, and so wonderfully soft.

I’m looking forward to sitting and embroidering songbird wings and hoot owl eyes for the next week while I’m on vacation. I find hand-sewing very relaxing. Should come in handy once midterms arrive in the fall!
