Bird house tissue box
Below are the requirements to make the complete bird house, sewing on buttons will be done at home, so don’t worry if you haven’t got any for class. The pelmet Vilene that I use is only 11.5” wide hence the 1and a half meters, if yours is double the width then you will need less. Choose fabric that suits your home since not everybody likes brights!!!!!
