    <3 birds!

    Lesley Clark says:

    Your fabric looks luscious!   I’d love to make somethings with it.

    Haven’t had too many bird fabrics, but I do adore them and think they’d make some great tote or market bags with a prairie style twist to them!  I made sure my new banner and avatar in my Etsy shop included them and I’m got many decorative items around my house that feature them.  Hope to win this fun fabric!  Have a great day!

    MaryW says:

    Gorgeous!!!  I dont have any bird fabric in my stash.  Heck, I’m such a new quilter, I hardly have a stash at all!!

    Fun! I didn’t make it, but one of my most favorite paintings by my most artistic daughter is of a Robin. She’s only  9, but watercolors are her medium and she enjoys it so!

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    I’ve made cute little aprons with birds on them for use in the Spring when birds are in abundance!

    craftytammie says:

    i made a book bag with two bird appliques on it – and finally used the decorative stitches on my machine to stitch it down! 

    Tnath says:

    I really love these bird fabrics!  They are so fun.

    I’ve never actually made anything with birds on it, but I do have my eye on something. It’s a felt clutch with a little bird appliqued onto the front of it. Love!

    Rhonda Cockman says:

    I have cats, dogs and frogs even have cows but no birds yet.

    Drmithome says:

    I made a cute dress with appliquéd birds on it for my daughter when she was little. thanks for the giveaway.

    Amy says:

    I have made mosaic bird houses.  With fabric, nothing yet, but I do have some plans…… : )

    Miller Annik says:

    Wow, what a beautiful collection of fabric! I’m crazy about bird fabric (my father is an ornithologist, so the apple didn’t fall far from the tree). Besides many bags, I love little covered button magnets made with an Echino prints.

    tracy_a says:

    Favorite – the bird-themed party for my 6 year old – thumbprint birdies, pin the birdie in the nest, painting birdhouses, little pompom birdies.  Awww.

    Angela says:

    I craft things for our local Farmers Market have yet to use bird fabric but I can see those prints turning into some nice pieces. Very cute! 

    Thea Schoep says:

    I’ve used bird fabric to make a bag for my kids teachers and my mom.  I’ve also origamied birds for our Chirstmas tree. 

    Susieqx4 says:

    I made a bird feeder that I has seen on tv. My first and nearly last woodworking project.

    Linda Armenti says:

    Eeek! Oh my! I have never seen what looks like the dots formed into birds on the white fabric, I must find that if I don’t win! I’ve been obsessively crocheting birds and hanging them around my sewing room for awhile. I love them, they’re so fun and easy. Thanks for the chance!

    I have an awesome chickadee suncatcher that I got at an art show {and that’s my favorite handmade bird goodie}.  As far as what I’ve made, this bird ring is my favorite:

    Crafter772 says:

    I have crafted felt birds, and want to make a kitchen window set with a bird pattern, as my kitchen one day will soon be all birds (fake of course)..  I love the fabric you have here, it is totally awesome!!!  Thank you for sharing…

    Beautiful fabrics! I recently made a pretty table runner and a composition book cover out of a bird/forest themed jelly roll. It turned out well!  Thanks for the chance!

    Carrie Luce says:

    I am making a quilt with the Aviary 2 fabrics–it has cute little birds on it. I also have a book of bird sewing projects that I haven’t found time to dip into yet–I’m looking forward to that!

    valerie.boudier says:

    Would love to win that bird themed fabric.  Haven’t used much but I can remember an appliqued tree that actually had a bird in the fabric sitting on a branch

    Mmdquilts says:

    I have made many bird house wall hangings and am working on a bird house sampler for my daughter.

    Suzee Neal says:

    love any fabric with birds on it.. I’m not sure if I have made any bird theme. I have cross stitched birds before!! 

    Megan Eliza says:

    These decorative pillows with Alexander Henry bird fabric – http://www.flickr.com/photos/redcedar/5519288856/in/set-72157625665989032 – are definitely my favourite bird-themed item I have made!

    Mangomerle says:

    Bird-related, eh? I make a lot of toys and enrichment items for my parakeets. Does that count? ;) I use folding, crochet, and knotting techniques a lot.

    Katie M says:

    I appliqued an owl onto a wallet I made. I also created a dress from birds cut out from paper.

    Gloria Naumann says:

    The only birds I have in my stash are cardinals.  Great looking fabrics!

    Anita says:

    My daughter and I used plaster of paris and balloons to make bird feeders.  I would have to say that was my favorite thing involving birds I’ve done.   

    Nancy says:

    Love anything bird related! This fabric would make great bags, that I have a ton of patterns for! I’m a sucker for any kind of bag! And I really need to start sewing some up!

    Kiley says:

    I’ve only owned one fat quarter with birds on it.  I made a sweet little ruffled dress for my daughter’s doll :o)  These fabrics are so sweet!!   

    Pdurkinpix says:

    Chickens are birds, right? I have a whole drawer full of chickens! It would be nice to branch out tho (no pun intended.) ;o)

    Nancy says:

    I’ve never made anything bird related ~ until recently when I painted a birdhouse ~ just for fun!  It turned our quite nice, and we hung it on our party porch!  Alas!  Within 2 days “Jenny Wren” was building a nest in the house, and her hubby was proclaiming to the world that a new batch of babies would be along in a few weeks!

    We love the variety of birds in our yard; woodpeckers of all kinds (even piliated); Baltimore Orioles; bluebirds; and of course the persistent wrens who build in any semi stationary orfice. 

    I would love to craft a quilt featuring birds.

    Axaemma says:

    This fabric looks lovely…..I am a big fan of the designers featured here, I am into making little pouches at the moment, i am sure some made with these bird fabrics would look just great!! thanks for the chance to win some great fabrics.

    Emilyarters says:

    Such gorgeous fabric!  Having my first girl after 3 boys any day now and have had a blast sewing for her.  These would be perfect accents in her room too!

    Olsonkyla says:

    I have an aunt that would love this fabric!! Maybe I could make her a gift.

    Suze says:

    I have one bird fabric in my stash. It’s waiting for me to make an apron out of it. Can’t wait to play with the scraps…

    Sewbeads says:

    I made an owl themed hat for a sailor. I would like to make a bird-themed quilt.

    Erica Johnson says:

    I made some paper mache birds to sit in my Christmas tree – much harder than I thought it would be! The bird-theme fabrics look wonderful.

    Ive never made anything bird related either except maybe a crochet bird amigurumi! This print would look so cute as a skirt or even a pillow for my kitty!

    Aly Of Etsy says:

    I’m collecting bird prints for my new huge summer bag.  I will be very artsie, full of interior pockets, and covered in birds.  Very one of a kind.  :-)
     

    Josie says:

    Love the bird fabric. I have made bird Christmas ornaments from felt, ribbon and cross stitch. I have also made earrings with bird shaped beads. 

    Dawn says:

    Haven’t made any bird themed items yet but, have a cute owl quilt pattern ready and waiting :)  These fabrics would look great as either the bodies or bellies of the owls :)

    Polkadotapron says:

    I have recently started on some bird embroidery but I would LOVE some birdie fabric to add some pizzazz to my sewing room!!  What a fun stack! :D  Thanks!

    Beckydecleene says:

    I put birds on everything. I add them to dresses and skirts. I make bird beads. I have them hanging in my house.

    Just love fat little birds!

    Dollie C says:

    My favorite thing I’ve made using birds (they were chicks, can that count :) ) is an Easter/Spring Wreath. Other than that, I made a little nest for a birdie I made over :)

    Dollie

    Mandy says:

    I bought a small fake bird from the craft store, covered it in glue, and glittered the heck out of it! It turned out so pretty that I make them and give them out as gifts. :)

    I’d love to make a bird themed quilt for my 3 yr old granddaughter who is ‘bird’ to her daddy. 

    wendy says:

    I love birds… I have a small collection of ceramic ones on my mantel. So pretty. I’ve also used bird fabric to make quilts, purses and mug rugs. Can’t get enough.

    Margaret says:

    Love bird Christmas ornaments….working on having a small separate tree just for them, including some homemade fabric ones. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Sewcool55 says:

    Birds, Birds and more Birds…….It’s what I’m all about :)

    Quilter says:

    My favorite project using bird fabrics was the Japanese themed small wall hanging I made with a flying swallow print as its border. Pretty!
    :) Linda

    Angela says:

    My favorite project using birds was making stuffed birds from the Spool pattern for my Christmas tree last year.

    Tania says:

    I have plans for a bird applique that I have found on the net.  This artist posts his work and he has kindly given me permission to use the image it will be a challange for novice me as it has many parts but I think it will be beautiful.

    Tinkermans Daughter says:

    I embroidered a beautiful bird, a free pattern on Geninne’s Art Blog. I love her work, and it was so fun to be able to stitch some up myself!

    Willowis4 says:

    I just made some bird ornaments using really pretty bird material, am giving them to the ladies in my bird club for Christmas.

    Nasly Yadid says:

    To be frank, I haven’t worked with bird themes before. I do love the fabric and would be thrilled with it. This beautifully-put-together stash is just the kind of thing to get anyone thinking of working with this theme.
    Thanks for the chance to win

    I love birds. I made a Thimbleberries wall hanging with a bluebird on it. :) Thanks for the giveaway chance!

    Melissa says:

    What a wonderful giveaway.  I love ravens and crows.  But even more I love nests.  I’ve created little nests for many things, including seashells and rattles.  Thank you again for your generous giveaway.

    Kelli says:

    Origami birds with my 5-year-old son! I love it when he shows me how to make them.

    Abbielou says:

    I like to make purses with bird fabric, dresses for my daughter and I also made a shower curtain once for my birdhouse themed bathroom.

    Alinissensctc says:

    I made a sewing machine cover and matching needle cushion/jar with bird fabrics. I love them both!

    Deb Girotti says:

    I actually have made nothing with birds….although I purchased a piece of Alexander Henry’s bird fabric and intended to use it in a garden quilt. I still might. Winning the bird fabric would be great!

    I’ve made a couple bird mobiles for friends babies, and they are very fun and easy to make!

    Bailey says:

    here birdie birdie

    Woolensails says:

    I have been in the mood for birds lately, love the fabric. I have lots of cats, since I collect them, but now I like to add some birds to the mix, fun combination. I have made some bird ornies and a punch needle bird, and some bird themed art quilts.

    Monicathedove says:

    I just love birds and even did my first born’s room in all birds.  I posted about my favorite bird craft here:

    Gayle says:

    I love these fabrics! I’ve never sewn anything bird-related, but I have the cutest little bird pattern that I crochet. I’ve made one for each of my kids and another one for a gift. They’re super cute.

    I have yet to make anything in a bird theme, but I expect it’s only a matter of time. I’d love to make a bird bag!

    Tena says:

    Well, I haven’t made anything with birds thus far, but this fabric is very inspiring. Thanks :)
     

    Cheyenne says:

    I have always loved cute little critters! This would be perfect for any of my future projects. Please enter me. Thanks.

    Anonymous says:

    My first and only (thus far) applique project was four hens, in honor of our girls Rosie, Audrey, Midge, and Rita. Now I need to make a second quartet, so as not to neglect Grace, Edith, Odetta, and Maybelle.  I would love to add some bird fabric to my stash–thanks for the giveaway!

    J Wilker says:

    Just sent my mom some birdie fabric halfway around the world for Mother’s day.  She called and asked for more!  These would be perfect for her stash.

    Sarah says:

    Great giveaway and love the fabric!

    Janey says:

    Ooh, bird fabrics – don’t have any in my stash. Would be fab to win and I could make a very “tweet” (sorry, bad pun!) hat for my own tweetie pie, Rosie! Thx for this awesome giveaway!

    jutval says:

    My husband watches, feeds and loves his birds. They patiently wait for him to feed them in the trees and dive bomb the bird feeder after he fills it with seed. It is amazing to watch them, taking turns feeding and hovering in the air. He would absolutely love a bird pillow If I made it for him!

    Ramona says:

    I love bird fabric.  I have used all my bird fabric up at the moment and would love some more.  I have made a purse, a tote bag and a cosmetic bag all out of bird fabric oh and a quilt.  Thanks for the chance to win!

    annabelle says:

    so cute, thanks for sharing :)

    Michellehaag says:

    Favorite “bird thing”?? Mine would have to be growing and crafting bird house gourds.  The gourds are amazing to watch as they grow!  And the vines are quite beautiful, I might add.  Anticipating “when” they are completely dry and then painting or carving them….Wrens love to nest in them! 

    kathyS says:

    Favorite bird thing is– just watching. Bird fabric has been hard to find. Presently, I only own bird fabric in black and white.

    Jessica Gross says:

    I love my collage with a watercolor bird I did for Valentine’s Day this year. I intended it to be hung on the wall temporarily for the holiday but it’s still up there…

    Well, for one thing, my little business that I’m about to open up on etsy is called “birdfriend”! I’ve been sewing, quilting, embroidering, and crocheting for all of my life and of course my favorite motif is the bird. From penguins and flamingos to parrots and peacocks, I love them all! :)

    Elimeenah says:

    I would absloutley love this little fabric stash. I haven’t made anything birdie related as of yet, and this would be a great pile of inspiration!

    My fave thing with a bird print has to be the stroller snuggler that I made for my daughter – it is mod but cute too, and so soft and cuddly!

    Love that birdie fabric!  I want to make a bird project soon!

    myrast says:

    I love most anything with birds.  My current favorite project is a little bird pincushion I made, complete with grapevine nest.  :o)  Thanks for the chance to win.

    Kacey Platky says:

    Happy birthday!  I am a relatively new sewer, and have not made any birdie themed items yet.  I’d love to win some fabric to change that, though!

    Webmailaddress2 says:

    My favorite fabric is the Park Slope bird fabric! I recently made a fabric wreath using some bird fabric from my collection. Would so love to win!

    April Baylor says:

    Adorable fabric!!!  I made my first tote bag with bird fabric!

    Marie Z. Johansen says:

    I am a huge lover of birds! we have flocks in our yard! I’d be thrilled to win this fabric!

    martsihlas says:

     I associate birds with freedom. I have made art quilts and pillows with stitched, dye painted or appliqued birds in all different shapes and colors. My daughter’s name is Paloma, (dove in Spanish). My Christmas tree is decorated with birds that I have been collecting for the last 18 year. I guess I’m obsessed with birds!!!  They are so…..free and beautiful and the fabric you are giving away is so adorable, I would love to have it!

    Cutie-kewpie says:

    so cute!

    Joanna LeRoy says:

    Great question! Not sure if I have ever made anything involving birds, actually — which is a crying shame! I guess I did do a whole bunch of origami cranes when I was in high school…

    Dr_jillhoffman says:

    i like to draw birds, and am new to needle arts; last year i made an embroidered bird that was part of a christmas ornament. it was supposed to be sold in an christmas event at a museum, but i liked it so much i kept it for myself!
    i love crows and jays, and magpies and while living in new mexico had wonderful encounters with all three types of birds.

    Tamie says:

    I love the bird themed fabric and would love to incorporate it into a quilt.

    jesse says:

    I’ve made some cute kitchen aprons for my kiddos.

    Lisa Marie says:

    I made an applique wall hanging of a large owl.  I gave it to my Dad who is a bird and wildlife lover.  When I bought the pattern I hadn’t really done needleturn applique and didn’t know if I could actually complete the project.  One class and many months later I just started working on it one piece at a time.  Sometimes it seemed overwhelming, but I just kept moving forward and I was so happy with the results!

    etonia says:

    My family keeps peacocks as pets. One year, after the boys had shed their tails, we made a door wreath out of the feathers. :) 

    Jennifer says:

    I like the shape and construction of wings. I have drawn them simply and complicated, folded and spread. I think I am captivated by the notion that such a delicate yet perfect structure allows for flight. I’d love to have my own pair of wings.

    Susan says:

    Made my daughter a bag with a bird flying past a tree in bright bold colors.  She’s had people ask her where she bought it. 

    emily says:

    Haven’t made anything with birds yet but have plans to make a quilt with some birdie fabric. :)

    Nancy H says:

    I have a very good friend who is a birder….I’ve been wanting to make her a quilt for 2 years…and all the bird fabric that is more available would be so monumental in creating her a birder quilt to snuggle with, under, on and all the other prepositions….I want to make her a birder quilt soooo bad!

    raygunrobot says:

    I’ve made a dress with a cotton all-over bird print, and napkins, and an apron…. I think that’s it for sewing.  Lots of knitting and jewelry things, too.  I loooove birdies!

    Cbeach0521 says:

    I would love to win the bird fabric. My favorite project involving birds was a cross stitch picture of a hummingbird that I made for my grandmother’s birthday. It was stitched ith cotton and metallic threads and I finished it into a pillow using a lovely satin blue fabric that perfectly set off the blues in the hummingbird.

    I made a quilt with some of the Echino fabric that has birds on it.  That’s about it.  I think I need more birds in my life.

    I’ve never made anything with a bird on it, but I am thinking of a quilt already…

    Seattle Hanlons says:

    Pretty birdies!!!  I would love to win this beautiful fabric! I have a fear of birds, so it’s not a fabric that I search out myself!  I have made a few wristlets out of owl fabrics, and it would be a lovely challenge to make something out of birds!

    I’ve never made anything with a bird on it, but I am picturing the possibilities…

    marie smith says:

    baby bibs and burp cloths they are so cute with birdies on it!

    Gina says:

    I’ve yet to do a project related to birds, but these fabrics look lovely!

    Jaimeddesigns says:

    I like to make fabric applique cards, some of them are birds!

    Hillary Carter says:

    Hmmm, the first quilt I ever made, for my brand new baby nephew, had rubber duckies on it. 

    Leisan says:

    I’d love to try something with bird fabric!  The only real bird project I’ve “made” is a cross stitch peacock, and it’s not meant to be ever finished.  Years ago I got the kit – the work in progress was destroyed in a huge earthquake.  I got another kit – the work in progress was clawed up by my cat.  I got another – the work in progress was lost in a move.  I have one more, but I’m afraid to open it!  I think something with FABRIC would go a lot better.  I hope! :)

    I adore birds and have made aprons and curtains. I would love to make a small quilt for the wall with these beauties:-)

    Mamat24 says:

    I made an apron with a bird print, and gave it to my daughter.

    Alohales says:

    I love all the fun bird fabric that has been coming out lately. It often has a retro and/or a Parisian feel to it. I recently started a quilt with a bird fabric as the main. I added some bright pinks, greens and black and whites.

    Kim R. says:

    I would love to make a project with bird  fabrics but have not as of yet :)
    Thanks!

    Melodimommy says:

    I made a very pretty catch-all tote for a friends walker.  It was a good sized pocket with an additional pocket that faced the user, allowing them to carry a book or purse or craft with them without them having to carry said article It had ribbons to secure it to the walker and pretty lace trim.

    Butler83 says:

    i adore birds and have made some curtains and a skirty out of bird fabric! thanks for the lovely series and giveaway!

    Jeanette says:

    I love to embroider.  My very first project was a nursing cover with a mother bird feeding a baby bird.  I would LOVE to win these fabrics!

    Vineyard_studio says:

    I’ve been working on an owl applique but I think I like some nice bird fabric as well.

    I’ve had birds on the brain for years! My favorite? Too hard to choose, but here are some pix of my last featured artist show at my local art association, where there are whole flock of birds! http://www.candiedfabrics.com/2010/12/09/peek-at-my-artist-exhibit/

    Meganbetts says:

    I make personalized Baby’s First Christmas ornaments.They are little felt birds with the name embroidered on one wing,date on the other and flowers and vines embroidered all over.

    Simone says:

    I am currently embroidering a baby bib for my cousin’s new born daughter with a mommy or daddy owl and baby owl.  But my all time favorite crafts project with birds would have to be the parrot I water colored at art camp when I was twelve.

    Amanda says:

    Oh!  I have a skirt that I made with bird fabric, unfortunately the pattern was not true-to-size so it doesn’t fit.  But it turned out super lovely!
    Thanks for the giveaway!!

    Tksimons says:

    The only thing I can think of is a baby pillowcase with a shadow work embroidered bird.  I really need some bird fabric!

    Rhonda says:

    I have cross-stitched bird pictures and embroidered birds on towels but nothing with bird fabric so a win would help the next project along!

    Krista Shufelt says:

    I sewed two small stuffed birds for my daughter from pretty abstract print fabrics.  She chewed on them.

    Debra Lee says:

    Unfortunately I haven’t made anything with birds but this fabric could change that!

    Jen S. says:

    I *love* birds!  My obsession hit a high point when I was pregnant with my daughter (just turned 3!).  She was in so many birdy outfits her first year :)  I actually have made three baby bedding sets out of JD Aviary in the pink/khaki green colorway.  Love that line!  Thank you for a chance at such a fabulous giveaway.  Happy Blogiversary!

    Wanda Spain says:

    I love birds.  I have 3 parrots, a blue and gold macaw named Kokomo, a yellow collar macaw named Bozo (he is the clown) and a Quaker parrot called baby.  I have made cage covers for their cages. I am so glad that I dont have to make them now with the price of material, we have 2 real big cages. I just finished making Kokomo a couple toys made with material.  His beak is so strong he breaks his toys but he loves fleece and different kinds of material.  He likes to chew on them. The other birds like them two but not as much as he does.  They are so much fun, they talk,entertain you, heck they even bark like the dogs lol.  Thank you for the chance of winning some bird fabric and Happy Biogiverasry,

    Kwhitsell says:

    Haven’t made anything with birds yet, but would love to!  This fabric is so cute!  Love the new stuff coming out with birds and owls!  These would be cute make up bags!

    Birds connect us with the sky and the trees and help us to look up.  Both of my daughters have given me watercolors they made of birds.  I would love to make them a quilt or pillow with that bird inspired fabric!

    hmm..birdie huh?? I would make a mug rug or a tote bag with the birdie in the center and surrounded by different kind of fabrics… Hard to describe the idea here.. But, this is what in my mind right now :D
    Thanks for the chance…

    I haven’t made any fabric bird-related things…but I’ve made pine-cone bird feeders, both with suet and with peanut butter plus birdseed. It’s a fun kid project to make Christmas gifts!

    Dani says:

    I have to say that my favorite item that I have made with birds is a stunning clutch that is black with red birds.  Love it.

    Nicole Eatherly says:

    My favorite bird object I made is a stunningly simple gemstone and sterling necklace with blue crazy lace agate beads and a wood focal that I painted to look like a blue bird….with different painting styles on each of the 2 sides.

    My favorite thing was to make stuffed doves for my Christmas tree….

    I love sewing around the theme of birds……especially owls!!

    Karyn Todd says:

    I haven’t made anything with bird fabrics (yet). The only bird related items I’ve made were not fabric related (but still very cute). There was a point where I fell in love with some fabulous green & white bird fabric, but just couldn’t bring myself to spend the $$$ for it (yes, that is 3 dollar signs!!! Yikes!)

    When I was actively into crewel embroidery, I made a wall hanging with owls of many different types — there was a large snowy owl in the middle who was very cool!
    thanks

    Melinda says:

    Ooh, I actually picked up a couple of fat quarters with birds on them just to create something. Wouldn’t it be cool to have an eclectic quilt filled with bird fabrics? How neat would that be?

    Danna BC says:

    My favorite item was a bullfinch that I made (using a tutorial I believe I found here on Lark Crafts) that hangs on my jewelry tree. :)

    I haven’t made any bird things from fabric — yet — but I did build stair-casing potted silk flowers in my carport. Each one has plenty of moss , privacy from the flowers and leafs and is away from the elements and most prey. Every year we’ll have some mama birds come build their nests in these pots.  It’s so enjoyable to watch the events close up.

    I have needle felted a little blue jay which I plan on making into an ornament.  I had part of robin felted, but my dog, who happens to be a bird hunting dog somehow managed to snag it from a tall dresser and the rest is history.  Poor robin.  I don’t believe in hunting, but he doesn’t understand that.  He LOVES the scent of my wool roving so much that i have to keep it in a tightly closed drawer.  Apparently I need to secure my projects too!   

    Jagels says:

    I made a couple of bird pincushions and birds made from felted sweater scraps. they were my favorite, very soft and cuddly.  love to win  the fabric. i love birds1

    I love birds! I embroidered birds on some curtains for my daughters’ room–I love looking at them.

    Lynmerie says:

    I painted a pheonix once in bright colors and did a linoleum block print of a red tailed hawk for a friend’s wedding present who loved birds. Also drew,birds in a pic depicting Psalm 8. It would be fun t now try something in fabric!! I like learning new things and it seems one could be very creative with these fabrics. We have our first grandbaby due,maybe could be something for him/her to enjoy too?!

    My favorite thing my momma made from a bird fabric was a quillo. A quilt that folds up into a pillow. It was made out of Rooster fabric. Large colorful Rooster fabric. It was cute.

    Baukje Van Velde says:

    I used birdfabric in different ways, lining for a bag, wallhanging for our granddaughter, keyholders, in my japanese heart quilt and so on. Would LOVE to win this bundle?

    Calikisses17 says:

    I actually haven’t made anything with birds yet. I have been really loving the owl craze lately and have been wanting to sew up some of those cute owl plushies. Maybe I can make them with some bird fabric if I win :) Thanks!

    Alli says:

    I made four mini stuffed owls for my husband’s birthday last year. Now my older son likes to collect them and throw them around. :D

    Sincerelysaradesigns says:

    I love birds! My wedding theme last year was birds so I made bird place cards, birdhouses (as parting gifts), they were part of all the bouquets, they were part of the photo back drop, and I used nests as part of the decor. I also love adding birds to my projects….I applique them onto onesies and bags. I’ve used bird fabric for bags, a changing pad, a bib, and aprons too!  

    Kcarlson says:

    I have no bird fabrics (tons of pirates though) but I did make some onesies with bird appliqués for my niece.  

    Kelly massman says:

    Quite lovely! I’ve made bird cards and bird scrapbook layouts, but nothing in fabric! Here’s hoping that will change… thanks for the chance to win!

    Kate S. says:

    Good luck to everybody!!! 

    Molly Plasters says:

    Birds can be so versatile.  I recently finished a baby quilt with background fabric printed with little birds sitting in the trees.

    Guineababy says:

    My favorite bird themed project I made was a sleep mask for my sister…I crocheted owl eyes and sewed it to a padded backing with a stretchy strap. It came out quite retro and she loved it.

    Annie says:
