My colleague made the beautiful houses with them,
And I needlefelted the birds with the children.
They are really nice and easy to make! So here is a tutorial;
Needle felt wool, feathers, a little piece of red felt fabric and a feltneedle,
first make a little cocoon,
Than take the feltneedle and poke up and down till the cocoon (bird body) is a bit firm.
Now choose a different color for the wings and poke them to the body. One on each side.
Take the scissors and make a cut on one side of the body.(the butt)
Choose a feather and put it in the little hole (the butt). Than poke a bit on the wool to make the feather tight.
For the eyes you can use beads or a dark color of wool.
The last thing you have to do is take the small piece of red felt fabric
and cut out the beak of the bird. Sew it on the front, and the bird is finished!
I know my English is poor but I hope the tutorial was clear?
Have fun making this little bird for yourself or with children!
