Spool birds

I'm a bit late to this party, but better late than never.  The spool bird pattern has apparently been all over the internet for ages; well I only just discovered it, and I love it!  You can find the pattern here, but this is only one place you can download it from.

It's a very straightforward gusset pattern - cut out the two shapes (the body on a fold), stitch together (three seams), stuff and sew the tail closed.  I glued on eyes too, and quilted the tails.


I made lots of different colour birds and as soon as Kitty spotted them she informed me that she needed some for her room.  So here they are, perched on a twig I picked up outside


and here are all the others, looking a very bright and cheerful flock!  Most of them are brightening up my desk now.


This picture shows off their lovely tails...


Back soon with more sewing (or possibly knitting, as I have some socks on the go).
