Robin Christmas Decoration with Nancy Adamek
Christmas Quilting Ideas • Educational, G, 19-Jul-2019
The decoration comes as a complete kit, which means papers, fabrics, and embellishments.
Nancy guides you through all the stages of making this delightful little bird. She starts with simple cutting out and tacking over the papers using contrasting thread. Then she moves on to how using a 3/8" seam allowance is a little easier than the more traditional 1/4". She also shows you how she likes to start with the straight edge, when covering curved papers and reminds that you do need to make two - one for the front of the bird and one for the reverse.
Remember when sewing the two together that it is wrong sides together and that you need to add in the feet, beak, tail and hanger.
The button eyes go on last as do the wings.
Oh, and don't forget to take the tacking stitches out! If you start your tacking with the knot on the front, it is easier to remove at this stage.
