I love this book, everything in it is just so cute! Neither my mom or mother in law are bird lovers, but I managed to find inspiration despite that! I found this wreath and decided that it would be the perfect spring accent for a front door:
I pulled out a bunch of colorful fat quarters that had been sitting in my stash for far too long. The first wreath used up all of the strips that I had cut, so for the second wreath I cut into my batiks. I forgot to take a pic of the batik wreath before I gave it to my mom, but here's a pic of my mother in law's wreath:
This was the smallest hoop at my JoAnn's, and after tying all of those strips I wish it had been smaller. It's not so big that it wouldn't fit on a front door, though, so it works. :)
I also made up a few reusable birthday bags:
Now, what to make for my father in law?
