How to Sew Felt Birds

Dear Chicago House,

Do you know, I don't like to sew very much but when I saw these sweet little birds on Pinterest I had to make a trip to Jo-Anns to buy a few squares of felt so I could have a go.

My color choices were inspired by two little fluffy pet parakeets Chicago teenager has and the pattern and tutorial is here.

Aren't they lovely!

  1. These are so cute! Kind of makes you seem like a non swearing, birdy loving, sewing all the time lady. :) (But, they really are cute!)

    1. Ha Ha Karah...they were made with a fair bit of swearing every time my needle became un-threaded ...and the fact I had to resort to wearing reading glasses to see what I was doing!

  2. So sweet! And, yes, reading glasses are a must as I sew these days ...

  3. Your birds look lovely! I really like your use of a third colour for the head piece. Thanks for posting! I've added your pictures to my Crafters' Gallery. :) http://nheilke.com/blog/crafters-gallery/
