Sweet Spring Felt Birds

These birds look so cute sitting on a window sill or hanging from a spring branch decoration.  You can even make them in darker colors to hang on your Christmas tree come holiday time.  With some red and black felt, you can make a bunch of cardinals that would be perfect as Christmas package decorations.

Thanks to Kata Golda for this great idea and pattern!

Felt Birds:

Materials:

  • Felt
  • Pattern
  • Needle
  • Embroidery thread (black, orange, and a complimentary color to your felt color choice)
  • Fabric filling or cotton balls

Directions:

Using the pattern provided by Kata Golda, cut out all your felt pieces.

Using a needle and black embroidery thread, embroider on the eyes.  Do the same with the orange felt for the beak.

Use your complimentary color thread to attach the wings, as shown in the pattern.

Use a blanket stitch to sew up all sides of the bird.

Stitch until there’s only a small opening left.  Use that opening to stuff the bird and then continue sewing it closed.

Celebrate creativity every Wednesday with a “Creativi-bee” post, where I share easy craft tutorials, project ideas, and craft collections.
