Stepping Outside my Primitive Comfort Zone
Ok...Going to try something a little different then what I am used to making. I don't know exactly what you would call this style, maybe shabby chic? You tell me. I made these birds with vintage tablecloths. A while back, I had a special order from a lady that wanted me to make her 20 birds with fabric that she mailed to me. Some of the fabric was old vintage tablecloth fabric. I liked the look of the way the birds turned out. So I sought out some vintage tablecloths on ebay and made up these birds. Just trying something a little new to see what happens. I'm not going to leave my primitive world behind by no means. Let me know what you think. I tried using the plain white background like so many use on etsy. Do you think they would look better with the background that I always use, the rustic wood? Will be listing these birds on etsy tonight.
