Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to your pressed scraps to ”stiffen” the fabric and give it more texture.
After everything is dry, cut 1 bird from fun fabric and 1 bird from coordinating felt. Cut 1 wing in fabric of choice. (I used felt.) Stitch wing to body. For my little guys & gals, I used a decorative blanket stitch on my trusty machine and a contrast thread color.
Match your front and back together and straight stitch them together leaving a 1″ opening at the bottom. Stuff with poly fill. Be careful not to over feed your birds or they will get fat! Stitch the opening closed.
Apply a dab of glue at the center and attach your button magnet.
What did I say -- super simple! I would love to see what you can create with this, so please share photos on my <a href="http://www.facebook.com/TheSewingLoftFB">Facebook page</a>!
