A cute valentine bird, a pair of felted slippers and another hat
I've been working hard on getting something new in my shop for valentine's day so I made this little felted bird. I wasn't sure what else to do with him until he landed on this wooden heart I had laying on my studio table and voila ... added a magnet with a thimble, a bit of bird seed and we have a cute little pincushion ... of course you can just have him sitting around without poking him with pins or needles. He will make the perfect gift for somebody who loves to sew, quilt, craft or a pincushion collector.
I had made these brown and creme color wool slippers a while ago and hadn't done anything with them. I finally made the time to crochet some acorns which I also fulled in the washing machine and then attached to the slippers. I added some anti-slip dots with some fabric paint which is an easy way to do that.
I forgot I had knitted this hat a long time ago, I just never listed it in my shop, but it is now.
The bird is in my PurplePlatypus shop on Etsy http://www.etsy.com/listing/67443462/needle-felted-valentine-bird-on-a-wooden and the slippers and hat are in my BitsOfFiber shop http://www.etsy.com/listing/67456723/multicolor-youthteenager-ski-or
