Still an amatuer user of the sewing machine, I attempted to make cute little stuffed birds for the the kids. We were focusing quite a bit on birds and I thought it would be spring-like to have these toys around.
Draw your pattern, cut it out and trace it on your fabric twice, flipping it once so you get one left and one right side of your bird.
Make a pattern for your wings and do the same as you did for the body. Do this for the beak, as well.
Pin your beaks and wings onto the bodies. Sew them on with your sewing machine.
Then, put the 2 sides of the bird bodies together inside out. Starting from the breast of the bird, sew up and around until you reach about 2 inches from where you began.
Stuff the bird from the opening at its belly and sew it up when you are finished stuffing.
Use your dark embroidery thread to make eyes. And now you are finished.
