What do you get...

when you spend one dollar and one evening sewing? Why you get a fabulous made-over birdcage of course! I picked up a thrifted curtain panel (for one whole buckeroo) that had fabulous crocheted trim along one long edge and across the bottom. Using said panel... I made a fitted seed catcher for the bottom of the birdcage...and a little fabric roof as well...At the point of each crocheted triangle I stitched on a little white pearl bead~ The flowers on top are hot glued to a fabric covered foam core "hat" of sorts that sits on top of the fabric roof. It is easily removeable without any damage to the existing fabric. Now, I am needing to find more crochet panels to fix up some of my other birdcages-- last count I was up to 31-- and thats just the ones inside my house!
Swing on over to Kim's blog to see what other girlies are working on~ Kimba is also hosting a D.I.Y. linky party... stop over there as well! I also linked up to Metamorphosis Monday over at Naps on the Porch nothing like browsing blogs! If you have linked to my blog and wish to view more just click "here."
