I’m taking a little non-embroidery themed interruption for a good cause. My lastest project is for a charity auction for Journey Towards Sustainability to pay for Eco-N-Motion mobile education. The mobile classroom will travel to schools and other venues in the Charlotte area to teach kids
about sustainability and the enviornment.
The theme is based around birdhouses and I knew when I decided to participate that I wanted to make a cuddly tree friend similiar to this plush I made is 2008. I made a few updated and changes to the design and I am really happy with how it turned out.
Birdie lives in his cute blue house, protected by Tree Friend. The house is attached to the base, which is covered in green faux fur “grass”. Birdie has a bit of velcro on his tummy so he can sit on his house or be taken off for play. Tree Friend has velcro on his leaf hands so he can hold Birdie or hug with his long branch arms. When not being played with, he can wrap around Birdie’s house to protect it.
