Flora the Felt Bird - a free pattern from Shiny Happy WorldThis little felt bird was such a delight to make! Seriously – I loved every minute of it. I want to make a whole flock of them in rainbow colors! And now you can make her too. The pattern is free over at Sew, Mama, Sew!

You do all the embroidery first – that makes it really easy to transfer the pattern and stitch. I highly recommend using The Magical Embroidery Stuff for this!

The embroidery is all easy – just three of the most basic stitches. Backstitch. Lazy Daisy. French knot.

See where it ranks on my new 123 thimble difficulty ranking scale?

After you embroider it’s all easy whipstitch to sew her together. She’s about 4 inches tall when finished – the perfect size to sit on my desk blinking peacefully at me while I work. :-)

Buy my favorite felt here. (Flora uses less than one sheet of peacock felt.)
