Felt Cardinal on a Snowy Afternoon

School was called off early and the snow is coming down. It’s a good afternoon to hunker down with a movie and a project. Today I finished a felt cardinal ornament that I’ve been puttering with. She joins the collection with my chickadee and owl family.

    I was looking for felted ornaments so I could decorate a little tree for our little one year old granddaughter. I wanted her to be able to play with the items if she chose to. I went to a neighbor’s who was busy making ornaments for her daughter’s new apartment for Christmas. She had already made a couple of your designs and they turned out so nice. Thankyou for sharing the patterns.

    Thank you, this is very beautiful. Red cardinals are my favorite. I will try to make one of these 🙂

    Thank you so much for this! We are a homeschooling family in TX. After Christmas we are starting a study of birds and adding sewing skills to our repertoire. This will give my boys something well worth sewing. Plus, the cardinal was my grandmother’s favorite bird. Nostalgia is setting in!

    I love all of your felt bird ornament! I have completed the red cardinal and chickadee. I’ve downloaded many other patterns. Now all I need to do is find the time to complete my projects. I especially love the attention to detail that you have created in your designs. Thanks for all your great patterns. Looking forward to seeing new ones in the future.

    Thanks for creating and sharing these wonderful ornaments. I adapted this pattern to make a female cardinal out of tan felt, I added a red crest, beige belly and red yarn stripes to her tail and wings. Here is a photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/50767171@N03/8331242016/in/photostream

    I searched and searched your website before I found the cardinal pattern. Thank you for having it. I am going to reduce the size of the pattern, so I will have more room for all of the birds on my tree. Thanks again.

    Susan, I live in Tucson, AZ and I love the bird patterns you have shared for a quilt that I’m making. Thank you so much. Jean

    Our art teacher used your pattern to make felt cardinals (Indiana’s state bird) with two fourth grade classes as part of our study of Indiana history. The students got to practice sewing and embroidery skills we recently read about in “Little House in the Big Woods” and now have a homemade present to give their families just like Laura and Mary did. The students greatly enjoyed the project! Thanks for the pattern!

    How many bird patterns have you made?

    • Susan says:

      Laura, I just counted. If my count is correct that’s 95 bird patterns and 16 critter patterns for a total of 111! Wow.
