As promised I am posting the block of the month tonight. I admit though, I ran out of time today, with church and a Christmas music program my daughter was in this afternoon. So, I'm using the santa hat birdhouse, I did a few weeks ago, for another project. You can find it on the AQST Block of the Month tab, if you don't get it today.
I have to brag on my daughter, a little bit. She did such an awesome job today in the program. She played the drums. I was screaming on the inside "That's my girl!!". :) I chose to keep it in, so that I wouldn't embarrass her.
1 - 11" square of your background color
- Of the red fabric cut out two triangles 8" high, with a 5" base.. Place them right sides together and sew them together, leaving the base of the triangle open, so that you can turn the triangle right sides out.
- Of the white fabric, cut a rectangle 5" x 1.5". This will be the band for the santa hat. Cut a 1.5" circle for the white ball at the tip of the hat.
- Of the black fabric, cut a 1.5" circle for the door of the santa hat birdhouse.
- Of the gray fabric, cut a crescent shape to applique on the black circle, previously cut. This will give dimension to the opening, when the pieces are put together.
