Birdie Magnets

Posted by on Jan 09, 2012


Let's face it, we all have tons of scraps! Well, my basket is overflowing and I these birds are calling me. You can really do so much with them.

Think about it-
~Gift Tags
~Lavender Satchels
~Holiday Ornaments
~Mobile for a nursery (how super cute would that be!)
This how to will feature the magnets.

1. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to your pressed scraps to ”stiffen” the fabric and give it more texture.
2. After everything is dry, cut 1 bird from fun fabric and 1 bird from coordinating felt. Cut 1 wing in fabric of choice. (I used felt)
Stitch wing to body. For my little guys & gals, I used a decorative blanket stitch on my trusty machine and a contrast thread color.
3. Match your front and back together and straight stitch them together leaving a 1″ opening at the bottom. Stuff with poly fill. Be careful not to over feed your birds they will get fat!! Stitch the opening closed.
4. Apply a dab of glue at the center and attach your button magnet.

These little birdies are a fun way to use up your scraps or even reclaim that special printed dress your child has out grown.

What did I say ~super simple! Would love to see what you can create with this… please share photos on my facebook page!
