They’re Beautiful Ornaments in Other Colors, Too!
These pretty red birds will be a lovely addition to your holiday tree. Or, use them to decorate gifts and baked goods. Their graceful shape and vivid color makes them sure to be noticed.
Of course, the birds will be wonderful in other colors as well. Make a whole flock in multiple colors, or choose one color combination for them all. We can also see them in pastels for spring decor and baby shower gifts.
The ornaments are made from felted wool, although regular felt will work. Quilting cotton will work too, although you may want to pink the outside edges or go over them with a satin stitch.
Hand embroidery adds lovely detailing. Or, decorate yours with machine embroidery. There are many options for embellishment so have fun playing with this pattern.
The finished ornaments are 4″ x 5 1/2″ without the hangers.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
