Spool Birdies

Birds from this Spool pattern.

The ten little birds. A commissioned project for a friend. I finished them up yesterday and they are flying to out today. She's going to use them to decorate her booth at the National Stationery Show in NYC next week.

I love those birds. I tried making some and what I noticed that my 1st 2 birds turned out perfect but 3, 4 and 5 started looking more like parrots...they were fatter in the head, beak, everywhere. I have no idea where I went wrong.

Very cute! (Good for you, I have no patience for making small things like that.)

thanks sew much for this post. I have already made one & hung it in my sewing room from the ceiling. I happened to look up & it scared me. I though I had a real bird in the house! - easiest gusset pattern I've seen. I intend to make a gathering of feathered friend to keep me company. Could you do a video post showing how you sew a row of your hexagons together? Thanks for all of your information, it is inspiring!

I love these birdies! I made some about a year ago, stuffed them with dried lavender and left them all over the house! Yours look excellent!
