    Thank you for another great pattern. I have been working the cardinal and chickadee in wool, so I’m anxious to try the bluejay. You are so clever.

    I will keep watch in hopes for a robin pattern to appear!

      Kathy, I made a robin the other week, but I think it looks more like a European Robin than an American Robin!

    So happy to have found this pattern! My son is in the 1st grade & doing a presentation and wearing a headband that represents blue jays for a science report. This is PERFECT to attach to it and simple enough where I think he can do most of it. THANK YOU!!!

    I have a question about the beak for the bluejay ….I am getting ready to venture into making my first bird. It is going to be the bluejay. I down loaded your pattern (thank you) and the last step says to sew the beak on the bird using gray thread….I don’t see a beak pattern piece…should I just “wing” it . Ruthe

      Ruthe, this was one of my early attempts and I didn’t include a pattern piece for the beak. So, yes, go ahead and “wing” the triangle for the beak! 🙂

      Hi Ruthe,

      I have another pattern you might enjoy. It is a pattern called “Augie the Doggie” that was popular years ago. I made two and gave one to a couple of twin sisters I knew from Ohio. They loved it!

    Hi Susan, I just finished my first bird….Mr. B. Jay. Thank you so much for sharing the pattern. I attached Mr. Jay to a twig and I think he looks great. (Photo on its way). The bluejay is a gift for my sister-in-law. I can’t wait to tell her about your website. Thank you again for being kind and generous….I’m looking forward to my next bird project. I think it will be the junco. Ruthe

    I run an afterschool program in downtown Biddeford. We have a time for sewing on Mondays. Somebody gave me a bunch of wool. We are using your patterns for the children to make ornaments with. They are all awesome patterns. Thank you for making them available.
