Last time I went shopping with Mum I was depressed to see so much Christmas stuff in the shops already but it led to a conversation about what we like to see on our tree. Mum really likes birds in the tree so when we recently got together with Charlotte I had an idea that we could make some birds.
I took along some scraps of felt, fibres and felting needles. The birds were cut free hand and then decorated.
We made these in a couple of hours.
The top one and the orange one are versions of peacocks. Mum decided she didn’t want these on her tree so I thought they’d make a great garland.
It kept Grandma and Granddaughter quiet for a while.
