My heart flutters for bird motifs, so I took advantage of an introductory offer for Mollie Makes' latest hardback publication recently as it centres around this very theme! I don't own any of their previous books so wasn't sure what sort of standard to expect.
It was a bit of a gamble as I was a little worried that it might be a regurgitation (mm... owl pellets) of projects featured in the magazine, but I wasn't disappointed.
The book features bird-design projects using a wide range of media, from crochet to paper cutting, sewing to felt, embroidery to stamping. The range of ideas was wide enough to include ideas that were entirely new to me, as well as new takes on familiar makes.
This parrot reminds me of the secretary bird from Bedknobs and Broomsticks!
Including over 20 projects, displayed against inspiring backdrops, with detailed instructions, I'm now pretty excited about trying some of these ideas out.
The book is officially out on 6th June, but I took advantage of a newsletter special offer, buying it for £7.00 with free p+p. Find out more about the book and offer here. (This is not a sponsored post).
Are you a fan of bird motifs? I've got plans to make a perching parrot before long!
