Make Them for the Holidays or Just Because!
These pretty little birds are perfect for your Christmas tree, decorating gifts and lots more. While they’re lovely for the holidays, they’ll also be fun spread around the house all year long.
String several together for a garland to hang from the mantel, perch them on a found branch or hang some from a hoop for a mobile. You’re sure to have your own ideas for how to use these sweet ornaments as well.
Choose beautiful fabric from your stash in whatever colors you prefer. The red, white and pink floral birds in the photos are so sweet and charming. They’ll be wonderful in many other colors and fabric styles too.
The bodies of the birds are stuffed while the wings and tails are fabric affixed to thin cardboard. Beads are used for the eyes. Quick, easy and so pretty.

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!
