It’s birds on my dining table. Actually, salt and pepper shaker birds in a bowl on my dining table…(Aren’t they cute? My kids gave them to me for Valentine’s Day.)
And it’s birds in our books…to make and keep for your very own or give as gifts:
If you knit, you could create the Wren Twins from Little Knitted Creatures by Amy Gaines. This book features 26 amigurumi designs (26 cute little knitted creatures) including Forest Friends, Fishbowl Friends, Friendly Sea-ciety, and more. Very very cute!
For those of you that sew, the front cover of Home Stuff from designer Linda Lum DeBono shows off a simple, modern-looking appliqué bird silhouette on a pillow that would be just perfect in a contemporary setting. Featuring a variety of other home décor projects, this book promises fuss-free designs that you can create in no time.
I really like embroidery, so I’m thinking this Branching Out design from Stitch This! might be one of my favorites. From the Leisure Arts in-house designers, this book teaches you how to use simple embroidery stitches, artist’s pastels and chalk, a few beads, and some scrap felt to create this charming design plus nine others using our patterns or your own.
And that’s just a small sampling from the flock of bird designs we offer!
