"What do you mean, this is not my nest!?"
A pindoll/hanging by CraftyeLadyeCreations

“What do you mean, this is not my nest!?”
A pin doll or hanging

Materials Needed:

1-Square of orange felt
1-Square of yellow felt
3 inch straw hat
Small length of ribbon for hat
Small amount of stuffing
Small flowers
Hot glue gun
Glue Sticks
Small amount of tissue paper
Yellow embroidery floss
2 small wiggle eyes
Tacky glue
Small bit of string for hanging
Hot iron
Freezer paper

All lines are cutting lines, trace all pattern pieces onto freezer paper and cut out

Iron body piece on to doubled piece of orange felt, cut out.
Use your needle and embroidery floss (6 strands) to blanket stitch around the edge of the body.
Leave a small opening in the chick’s body to push the stuffing through, don’t make him too fat. This is a loose stuffed body.
Cut out two wings from the yellow felt using your templates.

Cut two lengths from the yellow felt inch long x ½ inch wide.
These will be your legs.

Cut two feet from orange felt.
Glue the feet to one end of each leg, make sure to bend the edge toward the birds back before gluing the foot on

Cut a small triangle on folded yellow felt.

Cut 1 from yellow felt.

Decorate your hat.
Take a small bit of tissue paper and scrunch it up.
Add some glue to the inside of the hat and stick the tissue in there to dry.

Putting it all together:
Blanket stitch one wing to each side of the body using the yellow floss.
Hot glue the legs to the bottom of the body.
Hot glue the comb to the top of the head.
Glue the beak on the face 2” inches from the top of the head.
Glue the two wiggle eyes to the face on either side of the beak.
Now glue the birds bottom to the inside of the hat.
Put a string through the top of the birds body behind the comb, not through it.
Walla, you now have a bright little bird to hang in the window
