Easter birds

Easter felt birds
After making the mushroom houses I had loads of felt left. So, having made Tilda birds at Christmas and liking the results, I decided to make some Easter versions. I plan to hang them from twigs as a table centerpiece for Easter lunch.

The birds were made using a pattern from Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle by Tone Finnanger (Author).

Easter felt bird components
The components for the Easter birds. The sewing thread needles came in this cute pebble from John James. The ribbons and flowers are from VV Rouleaux (find similar ribbons at this gorgeous Etsy Shop). See below for details of the other components.

Lilac felt Easter bird
The body colour is V68, Lilac Rose, hand stitched using Coats duets polyester thread colour no.1542. The ribbon, from VV Rouleaux, is attached using a small silver jump ring.

Pink felt Easter bird
The body colour is P33, Baby Love, hand stitched using Coats duets polyester thread colour no.3572. The two flowers at the neck of the bird are also from VV Rouleaux.

Green felt Easter bird
The body is colour G49, Just Grace, hand stitched using Coats duets polyester thread colour no.3060.

White felt Easter bird
The body colour is a plain white felt that I already had.
