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!
