flamingo parade

The color of the month at superscrappy RSC may be lime green but I already did lime green flamingos when I did GREEN ones... I will show them to you in a minute...
 Here are the new three joining the flock.
Multi-colored!! Wheeeeee! What total fun! I might even do more!

I started with the "black sheep" of the flock, with the lime dots. The green dot was in perfect position for his eye right? ( used a marker for the center)

I had a vest made with this fabric, heh heh

I just love the little scrap of water fabric I used... it's probably meant to be sky but I just love the color change. Don't know who made it, but I only have a little and I wish I had lots. Can't have all of each fabric I like, where would it live?

 Is now a good time to show you the size scrap I need for these little guys??







 Here is a printed pattern from SewPrecise, and this time I cut it out, to enlarge it on my printer.
This is a big one, lol.


Look at the beak piece...
which is a pain to do so small...






this is the little tack holding up my batting to make a design wall, isn't it cute?
 The top two are from the Green month. See? When someone says green I think lime...
I want to make two more this month, a red violet and one with this silly dotty green.

  6. Lovely paisley flamingo, with a dotty rainbow neighbour: great fun. Every family has a black sheep, and this one is a little green as well! I envy your stash and your insight; you come up with such wonderful fabric combinations each week.

  10. What itty bitty pieces to sew together for the beaks. Hmm! A red violet one will look great with this flock.

  11. Nice work! So fiddly and so worth it, no? I am laughing because I also used lime green for the RSC green month, so now I'm having to do some other shade of green. I've been following along but not linking up. Also, I have one teeny tiny piece of that watery fabric too, and I am hoarding it. You did a wonderful job on these!

  12. Love them all. They make me smile every time I see one of them. Can't wait to see the finished product. Is this pattern in a book or online somewhere?

  15. The black sheep is very cool. You did not mention anything about the rainbow ones. Are they going to be saved for Mardi Gras? All you need to do is add some beads. Sure hope you can find the fabric you need. Good luck!

  16. Hi LeeAnna! Wow, those flamingos are small! And cute! The black one is great fun. You are one of the first that I've seen to add details with markers. You inspired me and I bought some but I haven't used them yet. I really do wonder how you get such small fabríc pieces to hook together. Is there any trick to it? Do you shorten your stitches by a lot? It seems like the beak could only have one or two stitches in its side. Is that enough for it to be caught in well? I see people do these really teensy pieced blocks for minis and I keep wondering how it is done without everything coming apart. Any light you can shed for me would be much appreciated! Hi to Hubby and Cole from me, too! Beth

  20. Your flamingos certainly are eye catching, I love them! And that piece of 'water' was a great find, looks effective from a distance!

  27. I LOVE your multi-color flamingos! Wheee - nothing could be more fun!
    When someone says green around me my brain goes to either a good medium green or lime.

  35. You did it again!!! Beautiful multi-colored flamingoes. Love them. But what do you intend to do with all of them? Do you ever sleep? Or are you dreaming about fabric placement? I've learned a lot about color and not to be afraid of it from your blog. I just realized that's the name of your blog. Very fitting!!
