free sewing tutorial: hummingbirds in flight
Is there a more beautiful delight than watching a hummingbird? I have spotted some magnificent moments: observing a tiny nest with a hummingbird sitting on her eggs, watching their wings flutter unimaginably fast and keeping the tiny bird suspended in the air while gathering nectar, seeing territorial fights as they dive at each other amidst the blooms. At times I feel like they are following me (or I am chasing them?) because this time of year they are always close by.
Choosing colors for this project was an interesting challenge and I changed my mind many times. I will be so curious to see some of your hummingbirds and your color choices. Hummingbirds are like opals to me, no distinguishing color, changing color depending on the way the light hits, and full of color all at the same time. Here are four patterns of the dear little bird in motion. They are stitched with mirror images on both sides, ideal for hanging in a window so when you look out or look in, they are always showing themselves.
There are two ways to access the pattern: you can add it to your shopping cart, and once you complete the check-out process (no credit card required) the tutorial will automatically be emailed to you. OR you can click the image above to view and/or download the PDF file straight from this page.
