On a Roll

I have something else new to share  with you all. Firstly I would like to thank everyone who left such sweet comments on my last post. They all made me feel so wonderful about my first attempt at a mini pillow. I would also like to thank everyone who gave me advise on how to improve my mini pillows.

Anyway here is today's new thing. I found these sweet little ornaments on Pinterest and fell in love with them. I have been wanting to give them a go for a long while now and finally decided to do it. So here you are:

Isn't it super sweet?!? Unfortunately you can't see the fabric I used for the belly in this picture but it is a lovely dark blue patterned fabric. In case anyone is interested in making one themselves Here is the pattern. I hope to make some more of these little guys as I just love this one, though next time I think I will make him a bit bigger. This one the pattern printed wrong and so it is quite small.

Mii thanks so much for the suggestion of using a ladder stitch. I checked it out on YouTube and used it on this project. It is completely invisible, which is wonderful.


  1. Aww so cute ❤️❤️❤️
    Happy hugs dear friend x

  4. I love the little bird and think he is the perfect size. Great job.


  5. What an adorable little bird!

  6. Well done! :D great work sweetie :D

  7. Fantastic!!so glad you're using the ladder stitch, it makes finishes perfect! :)

  8. Great little birdie! Your finishing is so neat. I looked up the ladder stitch too and it is definitely worth a go next time I make an ornie.

    I also have the same tin as you. Mine was a cover gift with a mag and has a magnet inside, so very useful for keeping needles of different sizes and counting pins to hand.


Would love to read any comments you would like to leave. Thanks for brightening my day :)
