wool felt (or craft felt if that’s what you’ve got)
yarn or ribbon
ribbon to cover hoop
small amount of poly fill
sewing stuff: machine, pins, thread, yada yada
First, draw a simple bird shape and cut it out to be your stencil. I used the one I made for my birdie onesies. Then do the same for a wing shape. Cut out two pieces of felt for each birdie, and two wings.
Then what I did was string them through the embroidery hoop, wiggled them around til I liked the placement, and then I tightened the hoop so it kept the yarn in place. Then I made a knot where all the yarn pieces came together and hung it on a hook from the ceiling. Oh, and hot glued a piece of ribbon around the hoop to pretty it up a tad.
Quick and painless! Sadie loves her tweet tweets….although they’re not hers for much longer! Poor thing is up for a rude awakening in a few months!
P.S. My sewing machine is (supposedly) working! I get it back today. Hopefully this stupid bobbin issue is resolved…I’ve got a stack of projects I’ve been dying to get started on!
***If you have used any of my tutorials, I’d love if you’d add a quick pic to my flicker group! Thanks!***
