Susan’s Bird Patterns

Following is an archive of all the felt bird patterns I’ve created to date. They are presented in reverse chronological order – the newest ones are at the top of the list. This crazy collection began with the Mama, Papa, and Roo owls that live in the header of my blog. After 80+ birds, you might say I’m a bit obsessed with them.

Where to Purchase Nice Felt

Where I live, the local craft stores only carry the polyester felt in very basic colors. If you’re in the market for really nice thick wool-blend felt in lots of colors, check out Shoppe 3130 or Sweet Emma Jean on Etsy.
