Description

This is a 2nd jumper I made with IKEA fabric. I fell in love with this fabric and the bird when I saw it made up on ikeafans.com. I can’t take the credit for the idea. I traced the bird on paper, backed it with iron on interfacing then used the zig zag stitch to made the details lines, same sitiching to apply it to the jumper. Added a small button for the birds eye. Made a head scarf in the same fabric as the bird, red & white dot fabric. Pattern: New Look #6578

    I love this dress. Its gorgeous. Red bird is stunningly beautiful set in the black and white print. I dont have an Ikea close by but whenever I make it to Orlando FL which is about 3 hours away I always go to Ikea and stock up in fabrics.

    Oh how funny, I had to look at the darn bird again to make sure it looks like a bird ;-). Sorry to hear you don’t have an IKEA near by, it’s even more of a bummer that they don’t let you order fabric through the website. Maybe you could bribe someone who lives near an IKEA to get fabric for you. It’s $7.99 a yard. It took one yard to make the little girls jumper. The IKEA Patrica fabric is a thicker weight cotton.

    I am so sorry, but the more I look at the ‘bird’ the more I see an ‘elephant’ or a funky ‘pig snout’. My son came up tp me and asked why was I looking retarded at the computer and I told him I was trying to picture the bird. He said ‘Ma go lay down because I see it. Or maybe you should put your glasses on’. Wow! So I left for a minute and came back…I see the darn bird! LOL Your jumper is cute. and I love Ikea fabric too but can’t order online and don’t have a close shop nearby. Any suggestions?
