Can you sew a swan today? YES you can! From elegant and sweet, to country and preppy, swans are beautiful, whimsical and classic. Making your own style of swan will not only be fun for you (you smart crafty lady!) but will bring joy to all who see your creation. Everyone LOVES swans!
Using simple sewing techniques, you can make a pretty Seraphina Swan in about 2.5 hours. Materials needed are woven white fabric (high quality works better!), scraps for feathers, felt (preferably wool) for beak and optional flower garland, and polyester fiber fill. You also need a sewing machine and thread! The finished swan is about 14'' x 15'' and sits perfectly in a chair, sofa, bed or shelf.
Sewing a swan is a whimsical and fun way to spend your sewing time. Through lots of testing and sewing many, many swans, Gingercake has figured out how to make this process as simple and easy as possible. A Seraphina Swan makes a gorgeous baby gift, decor piece, holiday decoration, and a much needed addition to any princess room!
