About the designer

I have enjoyed creating all my life. I love making things with different textures and colors. My favorite is to recycle an item into something unique and most importantly, useful.

Pattern Description:

I love birds! I have a few birds painted on a wall in my office and bird trinkets here and there throughout my house and garden. They just give me a feeling of freedom and simplicity.

I also love felted wool, if you can't tell by most of my pattern designs. Felted wool sweaters turned out to be a great medium for making these birds as well.

They are easy and fun to make. Get creative and throw different colors together to create a common bird or even something imaginary.

These make great pin cushions, wreath embellishments, ornaments, pet and child toys or just sit one of these little fellows on a shelf in your house.

There are four different bird patterns included, with easy to follow instructions.

Bring some feathered friends inside!
