Make a My Little Chickadee Felt Ornament

chickadee-felt-ornament-500x333Susan from the blog Downeast Thunder Farm designed oodles of felt bird ornaments….so many that we had fits of indecision over which to pick. The puffin? The owl family? The robin? The blue jay? My little chickadee won, due to their snuggly grey cuteness…and the possibility of quoting from the Mae West classic My Little Chickadee. Wool felt is available both in our online store and our SF store!
“Cousin Zeb: Is this a game of chance?
Cuthbert J. Twillie: Not the way I play it, no.”

Wee Felt Birds Take Flight!

It isn’t too early to get started making holiday decorations, and Abby from the craft blog, WhileSheNaps made this darling tutorial and pattern for wee felt birds. This would make a wonderful group project – assemble a stack of felt scraps, some tea and cakes, and a gaggle of pals for an afternoon of fun. Make them in a rainbow of chipper colors and let them take flight from one end of your home to the other!
