When I was younger, I thought that only old and boring people are interested in birds.
Guess what, I am there now :-).
I love watching birds, and one obliging little weaver bird is busy building a nest right outside my window. My favorite couch is the perfect spot to observe him:
If you would also like to make some, start by finding a drawing of a bird on the internet, and re-size it in Photoshop.
Then import it several times into a word document:
Print it out on T-shirt transfer paper. My printer automatically mirrors the images when I use the transfer paper setting:
Iron it onto some white fabric, following the instructions on the paper:
Roughly cut it out, also cut out some fabric as backing. Pin together with the right sides facing each other and insert a string:
Sew the two pieces plus string together, leaving an opening at the bottom:
Cut the fabric you do not need off:
Turn over, stuff, and sew the opening closed by hand:
Then hang it up and enjoy the little fellows:
Lots of love,
