While I was mixing it up in the bathroom adding beadboard (read about that project here) I also tackled the long awaited task of adding some color to the shower curtain. Here's a sneak peak:
adventures in using felt and applique this winter, I thought mimicking the birds already on the curtain in colorful felt would be fun.
I just held this paper up to the curtains and traced them to get the right shapes. Then cut out the bodies and wings in different colors.
I sewed the wings on using contrasting color thread before I attached them to the curtain.
This part was a little harder - I think it would have been easier if I had been patient enough to take the shower curtain down first, but alas, I just pinned up the birds and sewed them on with the curtain still hanging.
Can you see them all in the picture below? There are four...
They are small but I definitely think they add a little something. I may do more in the future but for now I love how they pick up the colors in the "Gone to Carolina" painting my friend Sarah made me before I moved to Indiana.
