A Flock of Felt Friends

I had a long day yesterday, but the evening work made up for all the daytime work!

Eight ladies at Chertsey Museum for the Craft & Wine evening . . . making Felt Birds

They are so easy - A big circle of felt for the body, and another about two inches less in diameter for the wings. a small triangle of yellow for the beak, two beads or buttons for eyes and a few lengths of ribbon for the tail (cut to length, arrange and stitch a few holding stitches.)

Stitch the small circle to the big circle.  Create a hanging thread in the centre,  Fold in half, sew on the eyes.  Start to sew the bird closed enclosing the tail ribbons at one end and the beak at the other, remember to push in stuffing before stitching it closed.

Cute eh?

  2. I can see these strung together as a flock.
