How to Make Fabric Birds - Hobbycraft Blog:





You will need


1. Using the templates provided, trace the bird body, the tummy insert and the wing onto a sheet of white card and cut out carefully to make re-usable templates.
2. Cut two five inch squares of printed cotton and place right sides together. Place the bird shape on the wrong side of one piece of fabric and draw carefully round it, marking where the opening will be. Take a piece of contrasting fabric for the bird’s tummy insert and draw around that template on the back of the fabric. Cut out leaving a 1/4in seam allowance.
3. Sew around the bird shape by hand or machine and then trim the seam. Turn the bird the right way out, carefully pushing out the beak and the tail to make a clear shape. Take the tummy insert and pin it in place on one side of the opening. Sew with a 1/4in seam and repeat for the second side, leaving a small gap for stuffing near
the tail.
4. Stuff the bird firmly with polyester toy filling and sew the gap neatly closed.
5. For the wings, take two pieces of cotton fabric and with right sides together draw around the wing shape onto one of them. Sew around the wing shape, leaving a small gap for turning. Turn the wing out to the right side, push the shape out carefully and press. Sew up the small gap neatly. Make another wing in the same way.
6. Attach the wings on either side of the bird with a few stitches, or with fabric glue.
