Purple Little Bird’s Girlfriend
The second plush I ever sewed was Purple Little Bird. I was never truly happy with it. I wanted it to be 3D, but couldn’t figure it out. Over the past 2 years I learned a lot so when my daughter asked me to make a girlfriend for PLB, I couldn’t wait to try again. I am so happy with the final result. I really wanted this bird to stand so I used wire for the base of the legs. I then wrapped them in torn fabric until they were soft enough for cuddling.
I credit Abby Glassenberg for her informative blog, book and advice, which have taught me some interesting techniques.
