Every year I make a stuffie from sparkly red felt. If I have lots of fun I make many of them.
This year I made 4 cardinals, with beads and sequins and embroidery. I added on weird little scrap wings.
One of them went to my good art quilting friend Cynthia, and she said it would live on her table with a nativity scene since she loved cardinals best of all birds, and she loves birds! I put sequins in a flower shape on hers. (no picture)
Whee! Not often I get a gift right!
Anyway, not content to make one for the stuffie parade, I had to make a flock for the tree.
Sparkly red felt, perle cotton embroidery thread, wire bent into legs and feet, beads too!
