Bluebird of Happiness

We’ve had a couple grey rainy days so I’ve been working on this cheery little piece. I love simple pieces featuring birds lately & was really inspired by the art of Andrea Zuill of Badbird.

I did something new with this felt applique and added a few embroidered details. It’s still quite simple but I like the little extra those details give it. I so love how the blue looks on the brown.

I was lucky & found a button the exact same color as the bird at Joann’s so, I used it to close up the back.

I was tempted to keep this one for myself since it matches our bedroom so perfectly but instead I added it to my etsy shop. So, I guess I’ll just have to make another one to keep.
