    Me gustan los pajaros y las puntadas a mano.

    From Google Translate: I like birds and hand stitching.

    I sure wish you would include felt feet on patterns for those of us who want to make them on wall hangings or other crafts. I think your birds are beautiful, but don’t want to put them outdoors. Thanks for the patterns.

      I’m glad you like the patterns. My birds do live inside once their photo is taken! Frankly, I for most birds, I find the legs too tiny to fashion out of felt. If I were to do a wall hanging, I might sew them on with a runnning stitch rather than applique.

    I love all of your birds and have made quite a few of them as Christmas gifts. However, I always make them double sided and stuff them with fiber fill. That way when hanging on the Christmas tree they look the same from either side. I’ll be making the chicken soon and putting feet on her so she stand up. Thank you for your birds, keep them flying!

    Thank you for all the bird and animal patterns. It is so good of you to share them. My sisters and I are having a great time making them.
