The felt birdies were made for the Christmas tree last year, but have taken roost on the front room shelf. I took inspiration from this 1970s 'Old Bleach' tea towel that has been turned into a wall hanging. I was really surprised to find that you can still buy pipe cleaners, and in such amazing colours. They make ideal birds legs and crests. I still have a huge pile of felt waiting to be turned into birds, but other projects have stolen my attention for now. I'm rejuvenating a sewing box, recovering a foot-stool and framing a tea towel for the CD cabinet. I will post the results as and when they're finished.
