Bluebird of Happiness – Karen Kay Buckley
May 16 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Bluebird of Happiness
I am so excited about this project.  Yes, there are a lot of pieces and yes, it’s going to take you a while to sew all of the pieces.  But, while sewing you will learn a lot.  You will learn how to make perfect points, perfect circles, perfect ovals, smooth curves, smooth stems, some hand embroidery and just for added fun…..a little reverse appliqué.
The inside appliqué area is 14”x 14”.  With the additional black border area the piece finishes 20” x 20”
