I have previously shared a photo of a Rainbow Lorikeet, the bird that reminds me that summer (& Christmas) is really upon us, so I thought that I would go one step further and show you some of my favourite bird decorations.
I have birds made of fabric,
and embroidered birds.
I don’t restrict my collection to fabric birds, there are birds made of glass,
and even glittery birds.
I am always on the look out for more bird motifs, & decorations, to add to my collection of Christmas decorations.
So when I did a web search, I was delighted to find even more bird decorations. I will be getting out the needle and threads to add to my collection.
It is too late for me to stitch a new bird for the tree this year, but I will certainly have it ready to hang next year:
The article by Martingale about Linda Lum deBono’s Sew Merry and Bright book featured this great set of bird decorations. I can imagine a tree dressed only in these bright birds:
You can use Jody’s bird tutorial , to make an updated version of my fabric birds.
Having spent time searching for birdie decorations I am now going to spend some time with needle & thread and fabric to increase my collection.
What about you?
PS: Don’t forget to come back on the weekend to see what KnitsnQuilts has been stitching for her tree.
