Giraffe-Birdies

I don't have many sewing finishes to show you. Just two knitted bird nests, and one pot holder.

Someone at Facebook posted a link to a request for knitted bird nests. They actually use these with real baby birds that are orphaned and rescued. The nests help keep the babies warm. So cute! I had to give it a try. It was fun. I am modeling them with a couple of giraffe tub toys that are about the size of real baby birds, I think. I don't think I'll make any more right now, but I might make a few over the next year and have them ready to send in the spring. They mostly need these in May and a bit into June.


Here's the pot holder:


And that is it for the exciting adventures in Carol's sewing room!
