Felt Bird Ornaments
We’re very pleased to announce the arrival of our newest Purl Soho Kit, our Scandinavian style inspired Felt Bird Ornaments! Their soft ecru wings and tails open to show a splash of cheerful color, we just love how graphic and festive they are gracing a winter branch.
These ornaments are super easy, quick and great fun to make. The skills involved are very simple (tracing, cutting and hand sewing) which means this kit is appropriate for just about everyone! Each ornaments takes around 20 minutes to make from start to finish. We think they’re the perfect excuse to get your friends and family together for an afternoon of holiday crafting.
The Felt Bird Ornaments make lovely and special gifts that will last and be passed down for generations. And plus, if you don’t have enough time to make them, the kit itself makes a wonderful and thoughtful gift for any crafter! Happy Holiday Crafting! –The Purl Bee
