More Monthly Makes for November...

Since today is the last day in November I thought I'd squeak in a few more Monthly Makes. I made a couple more Christmas tree ornaments.

My version of a Blue Jay...


 and, a Chickadee...sorta...

After struggling to make patterns for the felt birds I've made so far, I then discovered Downeast Thunder Farms.

Ah well....I enjoyed the challenge but sometimes it's nice when someone does the work for you:)

I borrowed the idea for a Christmas Dove from Downeast Thunder Farm. I changed the pattern a bit by making the back wing a separate piece. Susan has a ton of bird patterns and all of them are so simple to make:)




Gingermelon Dolls has posted a free Santa pattern on her blog that is adorable....I'm definitely going to make some.

I have a few more felt decorations in the works which I will share next time.

Take care:)

The chickadee and the bluejay are very realistic, are they made out of felt or fabric. Love them both.

These are really sweet. I love the chickadee and the dove. Are these going on the low branches to be touchy-feely for Grandaughter?
