Sewing a Bird Softie

Just hatched! Covered in hand stitching, this bird began as plain white fabric. Thanks to an inky dye job, she now has a colourful body and fuchsia lace wings. Bold eyes were added with paint and outline stitched in bright turquoise, bringing this stuffed bird beauty to life.

Simple but colorful embroidery stitches add an additional layer of color and texture. See the machine stitching on her belly? It's just another layer of texture, adding depth and interest.
