20 days until Spring! (and a Flock of Bluebirds has arrived!)

All week long I have taken all moments of free time to needle felt and replenish my Etsy shop with bluebirds!

Prior to this flock, I had attached bendable wire feet that would allow the bird to perch on things.  It was a four step process to make them: first, bend wire into shape, then cover with flexible glue, add flocking and paint. It would give the feet a textured look and allow for a little movement.

Then as I was browsing the craft store, I saw a package of alligator clips and thought maybe they would be good for the birds.  Not sure which way is really better, but I went with the clips on this bunch.  Which then created the need for feet…so I needle felted those.

So after a whole week of bluebird….

……after bluebird….

…………….after bluebird…..

…I feel like needle felting some other type of critter.  Perhaps a deer…or a skunk….or a bunny! 🙂

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend…HAPPY FRIDAY!
