Here's how it looks when it's finished...
And here are some close-ups of the sweet little birds...
So cute, don't you think? Pippa loves it. Every day I point around the room to the birdies and say "Tweet, tweet, tweet," she tries to copy me. But it comes out more like, "Tee tee tee!" since she's only 10 months old. It's ADORABLE, I tell you. I wish you could hear her. Anyway, I'm sure you're wondering when I'm going to get around to the tutorial part. Well, I did a guest post on my sister's blog Beehive and Bird's Nest with the entire tutorial. So rather than repeat myself here, I'll just link over to her blog for the how-to portion of making birds on a branch. Don't you love how Ive just added one more step?
Hand-Sewn Birds On a Branch Tutorial by Arianne
Here are some pictures of her room, in case you want to see how it all came together...
Her crib and wall stencil (designed and made by Big Daddy):
Her bedding, which is what inspired the bird theme (sewn by my mom):
The birds on the branch art, as well as her alphabet letters:
And finally her dotted bird/flower hooks, which used to be on the wall where the bird branches are now, and which are now relocated to above her closet.
