The first 50 orders will receive a collectable Sew Quirky SWOOP Embroidered Patch. Celebrating 10 years of Sew Quirky! Extremely limited edition! Whilst stocks last.

Meet my mate, SWOOP! An Australian Magpie with the most glorious warble. You could say he is quite the accomplished songbird, sporting the coolest propeller hat to match his musical talents (or add a flower crown instead!). For a bird known for it's black and white attire, this dude shines with glitter and soft vinyls. Touches of Royal blue glisten from feathers poking through his belly. Punchy pops of colour surround and give a glowing warmth. An extremely enjoyable textile art, feauting Mandy's modern applique techniques of incorpating vinyl, felt and fussy cutting. Then take it to another level adding texture with decorative stitching and free-motion quilting. Finished size 24 x 33 inches.


Hard copy pattern: includes full colour instruction book, full sized A0 pattern insert and reversed applique paper templates.

Add the option Vinyl Starter Kit if you wish! The starter kit includes the following items - everything for the black and white components of SWOOP - you choose the pops of colours to add and make yours individual!

o 30 x 60cm | 24 x 33 inches black vinyl
o 30 x 50cm | 13 x 20 inches white velvet (wing)
o (2) 15cm | 6 inch square of cream and gray vinyl (beak)
o (2) Fat eights: black and navy vinyl (tummy feathers)
o (3) approximately 15cm | 6 inch squares varying black textures of fabric, felt or vinyl (back wings)
