If you are interested in creating your own bird sculptures by using your basic sewing, embroidery, and mixed media techniques using those left over scraps, you will love this book. In this newly-published book by Abigail Patner Glassenberg, she teaches crafters how they can create their own birds through 16 creative projects from owls and wrens and cute chicks to flamingos and swooping cranes in flight.
This book really takes soft toy making into a new direction, transforming the idea of a sewn toy into a sculptural form to be displayed as artwork.
Artful Bird: Techniques and Inspiration
Her first two chapters cover the materials and tools needed and the basic birdmaking techniques. Each project contains step-by-step sewing instructions complete with pattern pieces all grouped together in the back of the book and beautiful pictures. Sidebars throughout the book help readers take their birdmaking to the next level. She also includes a gallery chapter with profiles of other fabric bird makers and pictures of their work for inspiration.
