Vintage Window Crafting - Birthing Angels Crafts

"He will open the windows of heaven and pour blessings upon you."
- Mahalia Jackson, African-American gospel singer

This was a fun craft idea from a free pattern we found online by Amy Butler.  We decided to change it by using small vintage windows as the frame.  A piece of wood was cut for the backing and will be covered with duck cloth.  We then selected beautiful paisley fabric to cut out the silhouette of the bird pattern.  The bird was first attached to the duck cloth using fusible webbing, then sewn on to the cloth using the zig-zag stitch.  We used spray adhesive to attach the cloth to the wooden board and Voila, we made a beautiful wall hanging.  We loved this window craft so much.
