Little Yellow Birdie Sitting in a Tree....

It started with the discovery of this adorable white metal arrow-shaped decorative piece, and ended with a spring-themed wall hanging.

Little pieces, placed here and there...  a nod to spring and all the pretty colors in my yard.

How to Make Dimensional Flowers

These are so easy to do, and you can make any 'flat' flower dimensional.

 Fold a flower in half.

 Make a few stitches through the center of the fold.

Add another flower by folding it in half, and stitching it up close to the first flower.

Add one more flower in just the same way.  Tuck it right in between the first two.

And that's all there is to it!  You can use this method for any flat flower.  To make a little bud, fold the flat flower in half, and then in half again.  So cute!!

Special thanks to my lovely hand model - my trusty sidekick, Sammy!
