How I loved seeing red-winged blackbirds in flight when I was a girl! It was thrilling to see the bright flash of red as they soared so fast and high above the ponds and marshes that bordered the Ohio country road I lived on. I decided to put this joyful childhood memory into fiber and thread. This stunning ornament is the result.

I used 100% wool felt in shades of black, grey, white, orange, and blue to applique the design, with embroidered details in grey, black, gold, and red-orange cotton floss. I sewed on a tiny blue glass seed bead for the bird's eye. The ornament is plumped out with polyester craft batting and features a hanging loop of narrow black rick rack.

The Red-Winged Blackbird ornament measures approximately 4" in both length and width. It was handmade by me from my original design in a smoke-free and pet-free environment.

The gorgeous felt that I used in this project comes from feltonthefly.etsy.com.
