House of Love

Hi All,

2012-12-08 06.41.21

I made this after seeing the very popular Bird House Pattern.
I added love birds and made the project as House of Love.

Making it was easy and fun.Especially using the bright colors.
This is my second project is Laura Knitting cotton and it is easy, bright & neat.

Birds, I saw many pattern and did mine with modifications from different ones. Heart is from the famous Teeny Tiny Hearts of Attic24.

After making the individual pieces, I dipped in water and then pinned it. I applied water-fevicol mix to strengthen it.

It took long time to dry and I was in a hurry to gift it. So I joined them when they were partially dry, added my beads & buttons( loved the pink & blue buttons, they are simple shirt buttons, but once I placed them on the bird’s tummy.. they looked lovely).
And I hung them on the balcony sun for a while and viola it is crisp dry..

I love the finish once I block and hang it.
Thanks for reading it 🙂 Pls post your comments.

The design & stitching all by my own. In fact, I did not have the sewing machine at that time, and stitched this in neighbour aunty’s machine with so many breaks. She was always patient with me. Though, she is very good sewer by herself, she always let me try my things and will give lot of ideas and suggestions for improvement.

The tiny Ganesh idol in the center is from wedding card and bought those beads & hangings in some fancy store.
And whole thing bordered with Herringbone -stitch.
Generally When I buy these fancy beads, I don’t think of anything or even If I had an idea, I don’t remember for what it was purchased. But glad I used them and now I don’t see any spare lying around. So probably I used them all :-).

Thanks Everyone!!
