I was searching long and hard for a gift to make for my six month old niece. I always struggle with infants. When I stumbled across this post on Eighteenth Century Agrarian Business, I knew that it was just what I wanted to make. The instructions are easy to follow and the bird pattern is adorable! I used yarn in place of fishing line and fabric marker for the eyes. Sewing the birds was so much fun, I spent all afternoon making them and forgot to eat lunch!
