    Love this. I picked up felt in mossy green and cream today and have the birds all cut out already. Will start putting them together tomorrow. Making this set for my sister… but then I want to do a set for my daughter’s room… and a set for my dining room… and… probably a few for Christmas presents! Thanks! Will have to check out the book too! Wish I could preview more pages/projects in it on Amazon… Guess I’ll have to go see if they have it at Barnes and Nobels or Borders…

  2. Kayla K says:

    I love this! I am going to the craft store today to get supplies. I’m going to make it as a baby shower gift for room decor. The mom-to-be’s maiden name is bird so she’ll love it!
