Little Bird, Little Bird

After falling in love with the little stuffed bird ornaments in Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts, I decided to make my own, winged version this year. And just like last year, I made these a gift to a great friend, so I couldn't write about them until she received them! I used coordinating fabrics for bodies and wings, so there are little birdie pairs.



I also made some simple stocking ornaments to go along with the birds, in matching fabrics.


They were very easy to make and I think they turned out sort of darling. And who doesn't love something with pretty ribbons attached?

I just found another great bird pattern today from Design Sponge via One Pretty Thing, so it looks like there may be some more birdies in my future!

Those are adorable! Have you ever thought about stuffing them with dried lavender or chamomile or something like that?

What a great idea! I wish I'd cut some lavendar this year!
