Felt Birdy Holiday Ornaments

I decided to make felted flying Birdie holiday ornaments this year for Toni, Terri and Sarah. Why birds?  I like birds.

I like to needle felt with a leather glove on my left hand.  I  stab myself less often.

As I was  making the Birdies,  I realized that the glamorous Ms. Pink bore a slight resemblance to Toni.  Bluebirds have a special meaning for Sarah who also loves glitter.  (Ms. Bluebird took a dip in the glitter when I wasn’t looking and Ms. Pink made a hat for her.)  Ms. Green wanted a skull charm necklace so she would look good with Terri. I did not have one, but she let Ms. Bluebird and Ms. Pink do her hair like Terri’s, complete with red bangs.  Ms Green thought she looked Sqwaksome!

I left the Birdies resting on their communal perch.  They are now in their new homes.
