I poured over the book after it arrived and promptly pulled out my scrap bin to select the perfect fabrics. Liking the look of the book project, I tried to simulate the fabrics somewhat closely, choosing a polka-dot for the center, a stripe for the top, and a feature fabric for the bottom. Unfortunately, my feature fabric got chopped a little at the bottom by the time I added seams. :-(
Using a darning foot, stitching the copy was amazingly simple.
The extra touch of adding a ribbon is an adorable kitchy idea (in the original pattern), but I wish my ribbon collection was more extensive and cuter. Solid grosgrain ribbon is the extent of my stash. Will need to work on that.
The backing was fussy cut to show of a little birdie. All in all, fantastic pattern and a quick project. Run - don't walk! - out and get a copy of the book right away - this project only scratches the surface the darling ideas in it.
