Say hello to my little friends...FFF (2 post Friday)

I made new friends..
I was putzing around the other day and came across Lolly's site. She got me addicted to fabric covered buttons right away... (she pulls you in like that)

Look at all the cute stuff people do with them!

Look at how cute this is from Craft Pudding .. Fabric covered buttons with OUT A kit!
Little Birdie Secrets did thumbtacks and magnets.. Love these!!!
J caroline shows how to make ponytail holders, and has great prices too!
Morgan company is selling them as keychains and necklaces, how cute!

So, the other day she posted this cute little Wendy bird. We just had to make one.. well 2. As you can see, the bird on the left has a bit of an eating disorder. She's thin, and I tired to over correct her head and now she's got a Mohawk. The bird on the right ended up working out really well, she's plump (because I didn't give up filling her well) and she's got good shape.
This just goes to show that if you don't PIN, things go wrong, no shortcuts! I didn't pin the first one, thinking it's small and simple and I can cut and sew this in about 3 minutes and I did, just not well. Number 2 was cut and pinned and sewn in 5 minutes and she looks better.

We hope we are on Carrie's Friday Foto Fiesta list but if not, go to Lolly's site (Lolly Chops) today, she's amazing and has a great Friday Give Away each week. JEWELERY!!!

I am jealous of "crafty people". I have not a "crafty" bone in my body!
