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.
