I make Christmas ornaments every year to give as gifts. This year's ornament is a bird made from vintage fabrics. Each bird is made up of 2 sides and 1 bottom gusset. I used a different fabric in each position on each bird. Here are a few of the 21 ornaments I made:
I covered wood clothespins with glitter and hot glued a bird to each clothespin. Luckily I don't mind living with a little glitter because it went all over my studio.
I keep one ornament for myself. One side of my bird is light, and the other side is...
...red! The bottom gusset is the red and white dot. I ran three lengths of flexible wire through each bird after I turned them inside out, during the stuffing process. I glued a wool bead to each end of each wire, making the birds look more festive. We'll probably be putting this pattern in the Christmas book we are currently working on.
