This week I thought I would go with a bird theme.
I was looking in my wardrobe today and realised that a LOT of my clothes have bird prints on them. It’s not really a secret that I adore anything with birds on it, but I didn’t realise I’d taken it so far… It’s actually almost pathological. Anyway we’ll not dwell on that, instead I thought it would look nice to photograph some of the birdie bits and bob round our flat, and put them all together.
There’s just something lovely about birds that I just never get tired of looking at, either in designs or in real life.
Here are some picks of my favourite birdie products on Etsy…
First, some unbearably cute needle felted birds by Ainigmati, based in Maine. Hannah needle felts her creatures using wool from her own sheep, which she hand dyes using plants from her garden and the forest. I would have been impressed if she did any one of those things, let alone all three! She makes lots of other little animals, including rabbits and raccoons, all beautiful.
