My mother had a special request for her birthday this year... she wanted a swan. I bought this pattern off of etsy in order to make my sister's Christmas gift, and thought that if I enlarged it, I could make a large swan.
I was very happy with the way the enlarged pattern turned out and even happier with the finished swan.
I used the regular swan pattern to make three swans to represent my brother, sister, and me.
My mom was very happy that I made these for her. She is usually a very difficult person to find gifts for, sort of like, what-do-you-get-for-the-person-who-has-everything type of situation, but she didn't have a handmade swan, or swans in this case.
They have a new home on the mantel of my parents' fireplace. I think they will be very happy there.
Until next time!
