This is a free pattern found here DSC00054-Edited

The pattern is pretty easy if you have intermediate knitting skills so this is going to be a relatively short blog. I followed the knitting pattern. However, I did alter the next few steps a bit.DSC00057-Edited

Sew your birdie’s head and back closed using the mattress stitch. DSC00063-EditedStuff it full of fluff and sew up it’s bum.DSC00066-Edited

Once you’ve finished stuffing and sewing your birdie closed, use the leftover yarn to make the hanging thread. Just thread the yarn through the bird and make a tiny knot – be sure to leave a big loop. Don’t worry about making them all the same length. The varying lengths give them character. little birdie told me

I did add eye’s.. but it looks a little creepy. However, If you like them…DSC00060-Edited

I loved making these and love how they look hanging in my bedroom window. I also stuffed a few with potpourri and hung them around the house.
