American Goldfinch - handcut, handsewn from my design.

Birds Outside My Window series...
As I sat at my desk, trying to figure out what to do with my life, I was continually distracted by the birds outside my window. The distraction grew to fascination, and I decided to combine that with my love for crafting with felt.

Each bird is handcrafted from 100% felted wool and wool/rayon blend felt. I've tried my best to capture realistic details true to each bird type, and like birds in the wild, my handmade birds are all a little different. Textured wools that are felted still tend to fray slightly when used for such small details. I think the fraying gives dimension and the illusion of feathers. Since I hope you will treasure your bird for years to come, I have securely stitched the fabric.

Each bird is filled with felt scraps for weight and firmness.

The bird pictured is displayed as a rustic ornament using repurposed jute twine. If you would prefer, I could instead sew a pin to the back so it can be used as a brooch. For a brooch, less filling will be used so it will lie flat on your garment.

This finch measures approximately 2" (5.1cm) x 3" (7.5cm).
