Anniversary gift



I decided to send our friends Ken and Jen a gift to mark their 1st wedding anniversary, and after a few rounds of sketching came up with this concept. The lovebirds are made of fleece, with felt accents for their eyes, beaks, cheeks and the flower, and printed cotton for the chest. I wanted to make it more than just a pair of lovebirds, so I incorporated their names and the wedding date by hand embroidery on the chest of each bird. The embroidery was fun, and I definitely want to do some more-add another creative outlet to the mix!
