Day 23 Make & Give: Love Those RedBirds

Today is the twenty-third day of my special holiday season of giving. From now until December 25th, I plan to make and or do something special for someone I may or may not know.I’m hoping that these little acts of kindness will inspire my readers and their friends to do the same!

Every year I make an annual Christmas ornament. This year’s addition is a sweet little red Love Bird! It’s to commemorate hubby and my 30th wedding anniversary (October). It’s also a tradition that I make 2 extra ornies, one for each of my children. Over the years, I’ve amassed quite a collection for them to hopefully trim their own Christmas Tree someday!

I drew my own LB stencil from mylar and cut then them out from red felt. Using free motion machine stitching I stitched the word “Love” in the bird’s feather and also a little sleepy eye. There’s a beaded dangle with glass lampwork, red bird bead on the bottom and I used gold thread as a string tie on the top.

Happy 30th and Merry Christmas, John and Children!
