Singing Birds Postcard
I wanted a bright Spring-like card for Mother's Day this year and I found this idea while wandering around the web. It's not original. I just love the simplicity of the egg shapes for the birds.
My free-motion stitching skills aren't great so I always stitch around at least 2 times to help hide the mishaps.
One of the nice things about sewing fabric postcards is that you don't have to worry about tying off thread. The fused backing fabric holds everything in place.
I made 8 of these cards because I also have a bunch of May and June birthdays. I like my little flocks.

Those are adorable. I like the sketch-like quality it gives when you sew around a shape two or three times.

OMG! These are so cute. They'll sure brighten the receiver's day, and sounds like they brightened yours while making them. Total Win-Win.
