I knew right away I was going to embroider something but otherwise it took me this whole time to come up with the final product. I just did a step at a time and waited until I came up with an idea for the next step. First I found this free embroidery pattern for the bird on LollyChops.com. I embroidered the birds on linen and added the musical note myself.
Then I made a branch for the birds to sit with some vintage seam tape. As I sewed, I pushed the tape towards the presser foot so it would fold over on itself and look ruffled.
Next I painted the backs of the tags purple and found a cute bird stamp at Michaels. Oh no, I didn't save the package so I don't know which company made them.
Then I stitched the linen to the tag and added a yellow bow.
Now I just need to add my name to them and send them off. I can't wait to see the tag book I get back. It will be a while as the deadline is still a month away but when I get them I will show you. This was lots of fun to make and I'm glad I didn't chicken out and not try it.
Are you doing something creative this weekend?? I hope so! Have fun!
