I decided to go for a more colorful approach for today's bird! She's comprised of browns, oranges and the best color in the universe...TEAL!
If you have any questions about these birds and how they go together, just let me know! I'll answer them in the comments so everyone can see!
Let's get started with today's tutorial!
I also cut out just the head from a brown piece of felt.
You can get the pattern for today's bird below!

I wanted to show a little bit more detail on how I make the pillow wings... so here goes!
Lightly stuff it and sew the opening closed!
She's single. Sports teal (like a champ), orange and brown feathers.
She likes making jewelry (like that fancy brooch up there), line dancing, burly men with broad shoulders...and sunflower seeds.
Sunflower seeds are a must in any relationship, don't you think?
Francie has simple needs when he comes to her man...
All she asks is that he get along with her Dad...
...and her super friendly Uncle...
That's not too much to ask, is it?
Poor Francie... I have a feeling she's gonna be single for a long long time.
But if you know a fella who might meet these simple criteria...
...email her at email@example.com
Once I had her fancied up, I smooshed the front sides to the other bird base from the initial cutting and did a quick blanket stitch all the way around the edges.
Before she was sealed up tight I lightly stuffed her with a little cotton fiber fill.
Oh and if you want to watch the rerun of the Live with Prima music box project I did last Thursday... you can watch it HERE!
Big HELLO's and thanks to all the girls who tuned in! You guys crack me up!
