Spring Tweets

My Thursday sewing group has been busy working on some lovely garden birds using simple stitches and blending colours, but the project is quite intense and I've had a few latecomers that would like to do something similar but in half the time.

So here is my quick version:  I've used patches of fabric to provide the basic colour and then stitched over the top to add detail and texture.  The bird is worked on calico over a background of printed fabric.  Once the final outline has been worked in backstitch, the calico is cut away to reveal the main fabric.  All that's left to do is stitch some feet!
