Wee Winter Wren

Have you seen a Winter Wren? This tiny little bird visits in the summer here in Maine. I tend to hear their sweet song more often than I see them. They’ve left for the winter now, but this cute little felt ornament will be a reminder on my Christmas tree this year.

    I have an ‘urban farm,’ where I raise Angora Rabbits, among other things. I spin, knit and have done some knitted felting, but I have discovered the delights of crafting with felt sheets from browsing Pinterest. I have named my farm – and business, if I ever get around to selling anything – Wren Cottage. I was delighted to find this wee Wren, and will have to make it to wear as a pin when I am representing my farm !!!

    I can’t wait to make this little Winter Wren (Carolina Wren), which I always describe as a tennis ball with a beak. They have such tiny bodies yet can sing their various songs so loudly. Thank you so much for your site. You are truly talented and so nice to share your patterns with the world. I hope my birds end up looking at least a little like yours (I have no talent). You are a peach and this website is beautiful!
