It's a BIRD, it's a PLANE

School is almost out....Summer travels are almost here....

I don't know about you, but, do you like to sew?  On a plane?? 
I just got back from traveling to Maryland, then to Chicago.....and I decided I wanted to make something while on the airplane.  You can now travel with needles and pins...and a scissors that is smaller than 4 inches.....

Spool Sewing to the rescue....check out their website for  free tutorial on Bird Mobile.

Before traveling I cut out a bunch of Bird Patterns from all my fabulous scraps.  I then hand sewed wonderful little creatures while listening to my IPOD.  Time goes by rather quickly...
I decided to save the stuffing for when I returned home.
I have to say that I did make quite a few of these birds!!!!  Once you get going they are really quick to make....and it helps if you play some "rock n roll" tunes!!!!  

And the finished piece is completed with a branch from your back yard.  What a great mobile for a nursery, or studio, or sunroom. 

Spool Sewing is the originator of this pattern. 
This blog is also a great tutorial.
