I was asked to make another round of Katie Birds for Blend Fabrics!  These fabrics, called Flutter & Float, are perfect for bird pillow!   Very pretty and whimsical 🙂

BlendBirds2017(3)The Katie Bird pattern is fun for showing off pretty prints since it is simple and not too busy.  But is also adds some character that a simple square pillow can’t possible offer!  I  hope you will try it out sometime 🙂BlendBirds2017(4)When you use nice high quality fabrics like these from the Flutter & Float line, you don’t need to necessarily add the extra layer of interfacing/ flannel that the pattern calls for.  I also reduced the size the 90% (because I can fit them into a standard box for shipping more easily!) and instead of zig zag stitching on the wings, I sew them right sides together with a piece of white fabric and turned it right side out.  This is an extra step but gives the wing a more finished look which I like when combining 2 prints like this.
