Good afternoon all 

Well here I am still sewing and enjoying the journey. 

I have made this Dove out of scraps of material, ribbon and buttons, also the filling 
was scraps of wadding which I had cut off other projects (like my bags the other day) 

I used a template of a bird shape with separate wings. 

Stuffed the wings and did a few stiches on top to give a bit of definition. 

Then using the scrap of ribbon placed it between the pattern body pieces and stitched around 
leaving an opening to turn the material right sides out. 

Hope you can see the ribbon which is from Crafty Ribbons and the buttons also from
Crafty Ribbons. Just love those Hearts I got the other day. 

Well those photos give you an idea of the Dove

I would like to enter him for the following

Have a great day and see you again
