This was inspired by one I saw like this on pinterest. so much so that I ran right to the fabric store and bought everything to make them and had them done in a weekend. I love them so much I am already thinking of other things I can make with these cute little birds on them. I am thinking, glasses cases, tote bags, ………gee what wouldn’t they look cute on??? 🙂
The birds are just cut out of felt ( I bought a sheet of each color). I freehanded the pattern for them. Then they are stitched with a quilting stitch using 3 strands of contrasting color embroidery floss. I also used floss for the wires that the birds are perched on. The blue fabric was actually a remnant and I still have enough left to make another project out of it. I love remnants for that reason, I think the 1 1/2 yard piece was 1.50. The pillow forms were re-covered pillows I already had so really a lot of this is re-cycling.and it was fun to do!
