Little blue and red love birds

love birds – fabric finches in shades of blue and red

I’m really excited to bring these little love birds to you, resplendent as they are in electric blue and regal red.  They’re like the original princess and the pauper; little blue from off the street, a bit gallus* with heaps of street cred, and little red from on high, well monied and full of airs and graces.  What a pair though!

I hope you agree that these guys are just LUSH!  I can’t help looking at them and thinking that they’re a pair of beautiful love birds, so obviously different but so clearly in love – well, they do say that opposites attract!

We only have a limited number in these colours just now having only just received the new fabric the other day, a really nice quality felt it is too in a variety of awesome colours including the red and blue you see above.  All the colours though are just bursting with vibrancy and vitality and I can’t wait to show you more in the coming days and weeks!

We have a few available in the shop, but be quick lest they all fly away!

work in progress – loads of little owls!

It’s been an absolute hive of activity in the MadeStuff workshop today and for your eyes only here’s a wee insight into our workings with a few work in progress shots.  It’s important that the owls organise themselves into a row at the start of the shift so that they can stand and behold the greatness that is the, Pin Cushion Of Pins And Needles, we find it really gets them going for the work ahead … a bit of team-bonding for the common good.

They can then move on to help their eyeless brothers and sisters become better acquainted with their mother-of-pearl eyes.  See how they shine!

Looking at the shot below it appears that the grey one on the back left has been misbehaving and has been tethered for, we must presume, his own safety; after-all, the workshop can be a dangerous place with all those pointy pins and needles lying about and we wouldn’t want anybody getting hurt.

Thankfully none were hurt and a whole new batch of workshop owls have been completed and will soon be ready to fly the metaphorical nest and be launched into the big brave world to find new and exciting places to live.

Having completed their labours for the day the whole team take themselves off for a nap . . .
