This Pin Chick's Pick!

That's Right Just beads no tatting
I saw a beaded bird, and gave it a try :)

Using felt I cut out bird shape and not knowing how it was going to turn out, and gave it a go.
 measures 3inches or 8 cemtimeters 

under-lighting to show where the beads are placed, and there is a button on the wing.

 Our little clutch is growing and the newest member is

  1. Oh, this is So pretty ! You do choose the most unusual pins :-)
    The little birdie would work well as a brooch, too . But I like it nesting in her hair :-)

    1. Thank you. That was my original idea was to make a brooch out of it and then both daughters said hair instead.

  2. Wow I am blown away, that is gorgeous and beautiful, funny I was thinking of using felt to make something next month, so I will save for another month don't want to look like I am copying you.
    That bird is just amazing and all the beautiful bead work involved, The hours is must have taken you.
    I was working on a trial piece for mine and my grand daughter saw it and said that her mum would like it, that's before I even added the beads now it think it will definately walk in that direction, No wonder we never get to wear anything we make.
    Have a nice day.
    Hugs Margaret

    1. That is what happens at my house, I even wanted to add a backing so you couldn't see all the little stitches but that didn't happen :) It really didn't take that long because of the small size. I was scarred at first and then it just started to really work as I kept going. the piling of the beads on the head was the part I was most unsure about and this seem to just work out okay. I will make more and other colors too :)

    1. I was supersized how this worked out and the head and beak was the scary part cause I just piled the beads on with out knowing what I was doing. It didn't take as long as you would think maybe because of the 3 inch size :)
