One of the free patterns I found was for embroidered birds on Do Small Things with Love. Originally, I came across it on Pinterest and pinned it.
I went through the wool felt that I had on hand, and came up with bright colors that I felt looked good together: lime/citron green, turquoise, lemon yellow, magenta, and orange.
The birds are lightly stuffed with wool from sheep that I raised many years ago. I'm surprised that I still am using the wool...but cleaning and processing the wool each year resulted in many bags of it in various forms (e.g., cleaned, carded, roving, batting).
Coincidentally, when I was looking at the birds this morning I realized that they also were in the colors of the first week of the Summer of Color challenge: citron green and turquoise.
I had hoped to do window stars for the six-week challenge, but didn't have kite paper in those colors. So, I'm thinking that crafting with wool felt and/or crafting a variety of items from what I have on hand may be the route to go.
At any rate, the little wool felt birds were easy and fun to make.
