Make One or a Whole Flock of These Cute Birds
They’re a Great Use of Scraps!
This darling bird is so cute and fun in any color combination. Once you get started you mind find yourself making a whole flock.
Add hanging loops and turn them into ornaments, tuck them into a centerpiece, decorate a wreath or use them as pin cushions. They also make charming gifts.
Make them up in Christmas prints and hang them on the tree. Spring fabrics will be fun on an Easter egg tree. Or simply choose colors you love.
The birds are perfect for scraps, even the smallest bits. While the instructions are for hand sewing, much of the stitching can be done on the machine. Use a Purple Thang or other pointy tool to turn the small pieces.
Sarah from Red Rocking Bird demonstrates how they’re made in the following video. You’ll also need the cutting template found here.
