I laid my pattern on the fabric fold, and cut out the outside shape out.
I did add a little bow to the ear. I thought buttons on the eyes would be cute, but I didn't' want any hard parts on it, in case my baby girl wanted to cuddle with it. I am so happy with the way it turned out. It was a nice way to spend an afternoon awaiting a icky storm that is going to bury us in some unwanted ice, sleet and snow. I don't feel to bad about it... there was 22 Robin's in our back yard this week, so spring is a coming! Yaha!
