For the first time in ages, I made a large portion of our Christmas gifts – and I can say, as of yesterday, I’m done with the last of them! Whew! My final project was just ‘something fun’ for my mom who recently discovered Angry Birds… a plush red bird from Obsessively Stitching’s tutorial. Overall it was very easy to sew up and the instructions were pretty straightforward (there are also lots of photographs of construction that would help the beginner out). I did substitute felt for all the parts except the main body – I think that the beak would have looked better (softer and the stitches would have been less visible) if I would have used fleece, though.
With Christmas gifts finished and wrapped, it’s time to make some cookies, tidy up the house, and spend time with family. I hope everyone has a fabulous holiday – I can’t wait to hear what everyone got on Monday!
