The start of my forest
The other day I woke up with this uncontrollable need to learn how to sew. I am not sure if it is the Project Runway influence or just the fact that I have not learned much since school ended. I bought a sewing machine and some cheap fabric and was determined to make SOMETHING. I guess I probably should have started with a square pillow or something simple, but that would have been too easy. Instead, I decided to make a home for a stuffed bird pin that I found at a flea market. He seems happy.
Yesterday I made the taller of the two trees and a bird to go with. Then I made a tree for the dog...she has been looking longingly at them. Hopefully canvas and demin will last a few days
