chirp chirp

Hello! What a great feeling it is when a new project works out. I made these lovebirds last night, and was so inspired by them, I would've been happy just working into the wee hours of the morning. Of course, my 9 to 5 the next day would've been a headache so I painfully tore myself away from the sewing table. I started with a simple pattern and then started sketching out adjustments to create the look I had in my mind. A shorter tail, a rounder belly, a little nip here, a little tuck there.
And of course, there will be felt in these little feathered friends. There's still a bit of work to do before they're exactly how I want them, but I think I'm on the right track. I think they'd be a nice addition to some new spring themed items coming in the shop soon.

For now, here are the prototypes......

I think you've got to be in the right mindset. Never get behind a sewing machine when you're stress/mad/frustrated :)
