Another Felt Birdie (with another free pattern!)

I guess I got little birdies on the mind.  Here is another felt birdie that I stitched up the other day.  I know that it is still summer, but I plan on giving these as gifts to the little girls in my life as Christmas ornaments.  I plan on stitching their name on the tummies…but I haven’t done that yet!

These little birds are simple and quick.  Just get out the felt, some quilt batting and some thread and down load this pattern.

Step 1– Cut out the pieces for this bird using the pattern provided.  8 pieces total.

Step 2–Stitch on the “tummy” piece with a simple running stitch to both sides of the body.

Step 3–Use long back stitches to attach one wing to both body pieces.  Also, make an eye using either a small piece of white felt or just black thread.

Step 4– Cut out a piece of quilt batting that is slightly smaller than the body pieces.  Sandwich this piece between the two body pieces and pin the beak and tail in place.  Also, pin a ribbon or string in place if you want to make an ornament.  Then, blanket stitch around the bird, using a running stitch when you are going around the beak and wing.

And done!  Aren’t they colorful and fun!?!  I think they are cute cute cute!  I hope you do too!

Thanks for stopping by

  2. These birds are seriously adorable! I think a tree filled with all red birds would be beautiful at Christmas with white lights and silver and gold accents. Okay, getting way ahead of myself. Really, I love this little bird.

    • You’re right…I am almost picture my Christmas tree now… BUT, I’m having a baby at the end of Nov, so we will be lucky if I even get the tree up this year. Or worse, my husband will do the Christmas decorating!

  3. Absolutely adorable. Thanks so much for adding this to the Our Favorite Things Link Party. Have you thought of making them as tactile toys for babies. I had bought a boring square toy for Alexa when she was little that made a crinkle noise when you squished it. A bird would be so much more fun.

  4. Cute little birds; they’ll be adorable on a Christmas tree. I found you through Karri’s party. Are you on Facebook? I find myself spending so much time reading blogs I’ve subscribed to and commenting, I have little time to do what takes an inordinate amount of time for me–blogging! I’m apparently a very slow learner, linking is one of my weak areas.
