Christmas 2015 - Birdies with feathers

Birdies with feathers, size 11,5 x 6 cm


  • Different colours of felt
  • Pieces of brocade or lurex fabric
  • Quilt batting material
  • Glue
  • Black pearls for the eyes
  • Feathers
  • Beads
  • Golden thread
  • Golden yarn


Cut out a 11,5 cm circle of felt and a 8 cm circle of brocade or lurex fabric. Pin the brocade or lurex circle in the middle of the felt circle and make a zigzag seam around --> foto.

Cut out a 11,5 cm circle of quilt batting material and put it underneath the sewn felt circle.

Then prepare the beaks of the birds. For each beak cut a triangle 4 x 4 x 5 cm out of felt fabric, fold it in the middle, put some glue inside, fix it with a clip and let it dry.

Then fold the felt circle (lined with the batting), insert the beak --> and sew around the half circle with golden thread - but on the opposite side leave 1 cm open.

Now insert the feathers on the open end of the half circle and fix the feathers with the sewing machine.

Sew on a black pearl on each side of the birdie.
On the back of the birdie attach a hanger of golden yarn with a few beads --> foto.

Make a lot of birdies and use them for small presents or for your Christmas Tree !
