green finch and linnet bird

pinned

This skirt I made last year had a stain, a rather unsightly grey paint stain and primary-school table level, a consequence of after school club teaching!

Rather than get rid of it, why not revamp it?

I am quite pleased! I used bird silhouettes off google images for reference, machine stitched and then embroidered for a final touch.

Excellent - you could make your clothes last forever with this technique (although you might start to resemble a Hitchcock movie from the waist down!).

This is such a good idea - I love the birds and hurrah for recycling clothes...Looks fabulous.
