Making a Yarn Bird
August 5, 2019
When there's Mr. Octopus yarn, then here's Ms. Birdie yarn. It just started with collecting yarn in preparation for my baby's upcoming christening, but it turned out that I had to procure some more as I discovered these cute little masterpieces.
- 3 different colors of yarn
- 20 cm cardboard strip
- 25 cm cardboard strip
- 2 black push pins /wiggly eyes
- 1 piece long felt strip (preferably color yellow)
- Roll one color of yarn on the 25 cm cardboard. Make a thick layer.
- Remove the yarn from the cardboard then cut the loops and set aside.
- Roll another color on the 20 cm cardboard. It should be as thick as the first roll.
- Do the same with the first roll.
- Now, place the shorter one across the longer one. See photo.
- Gather up both sides then secure with yarn or rubberbands.
- Roll one more color on the shorter cardboard.
- Cut the loop and tie up the center.
- Place the last bundle of yarn in the middle of the other two.
- Make a small ball of yarn and put it in the middle (under the layers of yarn). You can use the trimmings or scraps to make this ball.
- Close the layers and arrange them properly.
- Secure the ends with yarn or a rubber band. Make it tight and neat.
- Trim the ends if necessary.
- Stick wiggly eyes or push pins on both sides. See photo.
- Take a strip of felt and roll it to form a cone.
- Glue this onto the face of the bird for its beak.
