p.s. - backtack iii

backtack iii fabric
backtack iii bird
i finally made it to the fabric store on monday for my backtack iii project. i fell in love with that top alpha print and of course i'm a polka dot girl so it was only natural for me to get that too. i used wool felt for the back, beak, and wing. one of the specifications for the project is to use 5 buttons - i have two for the eyes and it would be just ridiculous anywhere else. moki suggested i make the bird a little leaf brooch with the remaining 3 (if i understood correctly) and that's precisely what i plan on doing. the bird is of my own pattern and was intended to look something like this one that i made my sister just about a year ago but the tail is a bit discombobulated. maybe i'll show you that another time. ;) i've been planning to make these for {love, joleen} for about as long. will try to make up a bunch sometime this summer. hmm, maybe for a certain soon to be two year old? without the button eyes, of course.

Oh my god...so adorable. I love my bird but unfortunately I don't have him out right now because my dog chews on everything and he cries for it every time he sees it. Weird, I know. Anyway, I love the fabrics you choose and thing the brooch idea is fabulous. :o)
