They’re Wonderful Gifts, Too!
These darling pillows are charming accent pieces and add a bit of whimsy to any room. Plus, kids of all ages will love receiving one to go with their quilt.
Or give them alone as gifts. While adults enjoy how cute they are, kids of all ages will love them in their favorite novelty prints or even in team colors.
They’re also simple to make and fun to watch come together. Once you get going you can make several in just a few hours. Start with a nice combination of fabrics and a piece of wool felt for the beak.
The finished pillows, designed by Virginia Lindsay, are 15.5″ long (from tip of beak to tip of tail), 6.5″ tall, and about 4.5″ thick.
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!
