Just in time!

Here’s my little birds. Just to recap, my father-in-law is a bird-watcher, and this is a house warming gift for him. Overall, I’m happy. On the first bird I did (yellow border), I kind of cut off his neck because I hadn’t figured out the importance of lining up the lines on the paper when joining two pieces of a block. He’s okay, though. The other birds came out much better. I particularly like the humming bird.

The pattern came from abcpatterns.com, and there are a bunch of different birds in packet.

That’s it! Thanks for checking out my crafts :)

  1. This turned out really well. I am starting to enjoy paper piecing the more I do it but it takes practice!

  2. I really love the origami look of this!
