Little Birds by Susanne Woods
26 Handmade Projects to Sew, Stitch, Quilt & Love
Susanne Woods, the author of Little Birds, has a love of fabric and sewing that goes back more years than she cares to remember and has compiled 26 handmade bird projects to sew and quilt form amazing fabric artists.
Susanne is constantly looking for inspiration and drooling over the exciting creations she has seen in magazines, at craft fairs, and all over the internet. Over time, Susanne has seen her share of the odd and irregular (and just plain weird), but what she longs for is a stunning project that is beautiful and sweet-perfect for gifting, decorating, or displaying. And the she started seeing the most amazing birds take from at the hands of some truly awesome fabric artists.
This book represents the work of some of these designers and showcases projects they have created featuring birds. This is the first book in a series of titles called Design Collective. In this series, Susanne has invited a group of clever artists who have taken pieces of cloth or yarn to amazing levels and have asked them to share one of their most loved projects in her book. Within these pages you will find quilts, soft sculptures, embroidery, and even a bit of knitting!
All of these projects will make you feel like an artist and will inspire you to learn new skills and work with a variety of materials. Each includes detailed step-by-step instructions so that you can create the project just as the designer did, or you can take off on your own flight of fancy. Some of the projects are simple, and some a bit more of a challenge, but all are whimsical, handsome, lovely little creations. Susanne Woods hopes you enjoy making this entire flock of little birds.
