Two become one

Do you want to see how?
First you have two birds:

Of course they need wings:

And when you sew them together you have one cute little bird.

With its belly missing... but don't tell it that! I actually forgot to sew the belly-bit, so I'm making another right now, which will have the original belly. I'll show you when it's finished.


Good news... I'm in! Yay!
I'm really looking forward to it. I'm sending my softie to greetingarts and will be receiving one from veryellaberry.com. Very exciting :)
I've pretty much thought out what I want to make. Michel really likes to think along in these cases. In fact he had already made up a design for the softie! He was very disappointed when I told him that we're really supposed to stick to one of the given patterns. So now we've agreed that I will be making two; one completely to my idea and one to his. I think it's great that he's so enthusiastic about it!

I love the birdie! So cute! I can't wait to see the progress on your softie. I was going to try to get in on this backtack, but have too much going on right now. Maybe the next one.... but it's going to be fun to watch you go through your project!
