Step 1 of 6
Cut a 6-by-7-inch piece of ultrasuede. Print the tissue pouch template and cut out the shapes.
Step 2 of 6
For the sandpiper design, start with a different color of ultrasuede, trace the shape of the bird's body and feather on it, and cut out. Apply a dab of adhesive to the back of the body and glue onto the center of the large piece of ultrasuede.
Step 3 of 6
Glue wing to the body and a small button to the head for an eye.
Step 4 of 6
Topstitch a single line along the center of the wing; topstitch two straight lines for the legs.
Step 5 of 6
Fold in the long ends of the piece so they meet in the middle and secure in place with a bit of tape. Don't use pins, as they leave permanent holes.
