Birdie ornament

Hello friends... today's ornament is a little felt bird.   If you love birds, check out my pinterest board here...http://pinterest.com/jenni_swenson1/a-little-bird-told-me/ It's so simple to make... all you need is some felt, embroidery floss, needles and a little stuffing.

I think felt is my favorite kind of material for Christmas ornaments.  If you can draw simple shapes, you can make just about anything.  I drew a simple bird pattern, with a little tummy and a wing.  I cut a front and back out for each bird.  Start sewing the 2 pieces together with embroidery floss.

I sewed the wings together seperately to give the birdies a little dimension.

I hand sewed ribbon to the tail, and hot glued the wings on.

Before they are completely sewn up, I stuff them with a fine layer of stuffing.

A little bird told me there will be another ornament tomorrow... hope you will come back!
