Recently the fabric line Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems for Cloud9 Fabrics was released. For me it was love at first sight! I couldn't wait to get my hands on some and sew with it! I'm linking up with Fabric Tuesday over at Quilt Story. I'm also linking up with Finish it Up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts. I hope it's not cheating to link up to two things. ;)
Then I got to work and made these lovelies...
I had some fabric left over and decided to make my daughters day by creating her something...
I still have 21" left of the pigeons and have no idea what I'm going to make next but I'm sure it will be fabulous. Thanks for stopping by!
|I snagged these three to work with. My oldest daughter and I would frequently take them out to admire them.|
|First I made this awesome Divided Basket from Noodlehead. Oh my goodness it is fabulous! A few months ago I would have never attempted something so 3D, I was scared of anything not a quilt, but this went rather well!|
|Here's the other side without the pocket. I just adore these pigeons!|
|I loved it so much I made another one! One for upstairs and one for down. Looking at the pattern for the fabric handles I was sure they'd be too small but they are perfect even for my extra large hands.|
|Here it is with some props because it's just so cute! She is so excited and can't wait for school to start so she can show all her friends her fabulous pouch.|
|I lined the inside with a plain gray. I sure love the fun color of that zipper and how it perfectly matches the pigeons!|
