There is nothing like a bit of crafting to make it feel like Christmas, don’t you agree?
I found a sketch I had done of a small bird (a dove?) which I must have seen somewhere and decided I liked it.
I drew a larger version of my sketch onto paper and cut around it making a stencil.
I then pinned the stencil to my white felt and cut two birds out.
I then stitched around the edge and stuffed it with cotton wool before closing it up. I cut out two small red gingham hearts, one for each side, and made a loop with the remaining thread to hang it on our Christmas tree.
