This super sweet bird pillow is not only simple but really fun to make. Watching it all come together is so cute! Perfect for a baby in soft sweet fabrics. Perfect for a big kid room make over in brighter colors and textures. Cute even in a teen room or dorm room in trendy designer fabrics. Katie Bird measures 15.5" long (from tip of beak to tip of tail) and 6.5" tall. She is about 4.5" thick all stuffed. Nice size for an accent pillow. This pattern requires beginner sewing skills and will help you learn some new techniques. You will need a sewing machine, and a little bit of hand sewing. Polyfil, fusible interfacing, bits of wool felt, and a combination of cotton fabrics. Make as many as you would like for family and friends but please do not sell made Katie Birds online. Thank you! Thanks so much for looking!
Hi! I am Virginia Lindsay, creator of Gingercake Patterns and the blog Gingercake. I started sewing again (like many of you!) when my kids were new and I was spending more time at home while they were napping and playing. I loved all the bright and beautiful fabrics available and I became addicted to searching for new projects all the time! I eventually found myself with many ideas of my own and I loved the process of taking that idea and turning it into a perfected pattern. I wanted to create items that were useful and thoughtful for our busy lives. Since most of us already have an almost full schedule, a day spent sewing is such a treat and I wanted to create a line of patterns would be a treat for the sewer and the person she is sewing for. My favorite feedback from people who bought a Gingercake pattern is not only "we use this all the time!" but also, "i had so much fun making this!" We all know that we can buy something cute at the big box store, but creating a handmade gift is not only about who is getting the gift but about how much you enjoyed your time spent sewing.
