The Ominous Red-tailed Hawk

Red-tailed Hawks are really very beautiful. Unless you have nineteen chickens and six ducks. Then they become quite ominous. In honor of the hawks circling over head this past week, and the readers who requested it, here’s a Red-Tailed hawk ornament.

    I have just discovered your bird patterns through Pinterest. They all look lovely and I will be trying some out. I think I need to make an Australian set. Thank you for your patterns.

    Thank you for all these wonderful patterns – while I came here pursuing an owl pattern I saw on Craftster, you totally knocked my socks off with the range and beauty of patterns you’ve made for birds.

    I love that it’s not just the “expected” birds for ornaments like dove and cardinal, (though you have those too, and they are just lovely!) but also raptors like the red-tailed hawk, and recognizable breeds of owls.

    Thank you, thank you thank you again. Your work is absolutely enchanting.

    I love love the red tail. How did you attach the gold wire? What type of wire is it? Just gorgeous. thanks so much for sharing.

      Renee, in this case I made a tall “U” out of the copper wire and sandwiched in between the two body parts. I tacked it into place to one of the body piece behind the wing so the stitches would not show. Hope this helps!

    I cannot believe how lucky I am to have found your website. Each Christmas, I make an ornament for each of my three children. My middle son is absolutely passionate about hawks. I never, in my wildest dreams, imagined I’d find a hawk ornament pattern (in my favorite medium-felt!). I wasn’t even looking for it. Just stumbled here. My other two will love a hen and a rooster as we have those, too! A million thanks for sharing these sweet patterns!
