new pattern : merry wobblers

I’ve finished my third pattern and it’s available now. Merry Wobblers are cheerfull little birds that are easy to make and it’s a great way to use little bits of saved  fabric. There is also a pattern and instructions for the little nest pictured and a leaf tassel for hanging.

I’ve also posted a little video on how to embroider the eyes ( this works well for the little bird pattern too) – it’s a useful trick for hiding knots when sewing or embroidering.  If you don’t see the video below  click here:

 If you’ve made my paper mache ships wobblers make perfect little passengers. And I’ve included a couple other ideas below.

I hope you make Wobblers!
