Bird brain

I really like animal motifs and wanted to make some kind of accessory with that in mind, and this is what I came up with. This little birdie is made of felt and is very quick and easy to make. Here's what I did:

I drew a quick template and used it to cut two shapes out of different colours of felt - red on the back and blue for the front, cutting a little heart out of the front piece. Before joining them, I stitched a brooch back onto the back piece. Then I used some embroidery thread to overstitch one to the other. Simples!

I think I might make a deer next, I've been inspired by my own deer jumper!


  1. just lovely! i love birds, and i would use this one : )

  2. thats such a sweet and simple thing of loveliness, I just got a load of felt in the post I'm gonna make me one too! x
