Stars, Hearts & Birds

Take some simply patched fabrics, trace stars, hearts, birds and wings on the back; add embroidery, buttons and beads

Sew around the traced outlines

Cut out the various shapes and spend an evening with your daughter stuffing these shapes

and we have "Christmas in July", Kookaburra Cottage's contribution to last year's Christmas Club. Next time I'll have to be more choosy when placing the pattern pieces.
This is the centre panel of "Let Me Be". All the blocks are together. Next step is to make a decision about border fabrics.

Your Chrissy decs are just brilliant - I love them. Will tuck that idea into the back of my head for another day.

Your hanging is looking fab too.
