A Little Felt Birdie



This weekend I went through a bunch of my felt roving and needles. Trying to contain everything in one place or at least in several like containers. Then I went through several felt and fiber magazines and felting books. That was enough to inspire me to make something.

The little felt birdie here is my first attempt at making a creature. I was not prepared for the eyes though, so I substituted a bead. Not totally in love with the bead, but it was a start. Now I have to find some good eyes. I have several other birdies just waiting to see so they can sing...
