Snow Bird ornament pattern available!



Time to sit down with a Christmas movie and get your hand sewing on! The Snow Bird ornament is now available in both shops for instant download:
Etsy
Craftsy

I've made so many of these birds over the years, and I never get tired of it. They make special additions to your tree or lovely handmade gifts. The wool felt means they will last for years and years, if stored properly. I love to get out my felt ornaments each year. They are my favorites!

You know I like playing around with different color combos. I think it is so awesome to be able to make one to match whatever your favorite Christmas colors are, no matter how uncommon:

 I just made this retro pink one. I think pink looks so great on white Christmas trees. Some fine day I'm going to have one.

  I love gold tones too. This would be great on a woodsy foresty tree.

 Can't beat traditional red!

I always love turquoise and red together. A lot of my decorations are in this combo.

Happy hand sewing! 'Tis the season. I might be able to squeeze in a Partridge & Pear ornament pattern this holiday season too. It's my goal. I sort of lost my original patterns somewhere in the studio. I've ransacked the place and they are nowhere to be found. It's making me crazy.

  1. YES! You need to release at least 1 new ornament pattern a year. I decree it!

    1. Jenniferingalls, crossing my fingers. Sick kids, school, meal prep, personal hygiene -- all of these things get in the way of my crafting!

    1. Maggie, you are so kind. To answer your question, yes, I've considered it. But so far have decided the best bang/return for my time is to release patterns as I go. I'm open to future possibilities, but this works fine for now!
