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!

Felt Penguin Clip

The elves on the 3rd floor of Britex made this sweet penguin clip out of felt and netting. Can’t you imagine one worn to Cirque du Soleil as a boutonniere on the lapel of your tails? With a burnt orange velveteen double-breasted vest and starched white shirt, you’d be the hit of the holiday party! (These snazzy clips are for sale at Britex Fabrics!)
