FOTF felt & floss color guide for
Colly Bird (Sapphire colorway)

Here are the colors to use for Colly Bird* (#4 in the series) if you are making my Twelve Days ornaments with Felt On The Fly's beautiful Sapphire felt bundle.
Sewing pattern can be purchased here.

*You may well be thinking, 'isn't that supposed to be Calling Bird?' And you are right! It is calling bird in the modern version. But this series is based on the original carol from 1780. Colly bird is an Old English term for blackbird! But you can make yours in whatever colors you like. Maybe sew him a little iPhone.
