Embroider your life

A forest bird never wants a cage.
-Henrik Ibsen

I'm delighted to share this lovely birdcage and hummingbird embroidery pattern that I found while traipsing through the wondrous and inspiring world of craft blogs. At last, I found the loveliest birdcage and bird motif pattern I've always dreamed of stitching.

I love this birdcage pattern so much that I plan to make a few minimalist throw pillows- white embroidery thread over dark blue or black fabric. In the meantime, this mini tote bag would suffice. I made a tree and bird themed zippered wallet pouch to match the birdie motif. I'm quite pleased with the results considering that I don't have a sewing machine and that I hand stitch all my sewing projects.

You can find this lovely birdcage pattern at Ottobre Design, a fabulous Finnish fashion magazine/design house for youth and children. More stylish, Scandinavian inspired sewing patterns here.

Happy sewing!
