This week I’ve been working on some commissioned felt birds. These ones are a departure from the ones in the shop in that they are made from 100% wool felt and if these are typical of the results to be gained from spending a few extra pennies up front, I think I’ll be using 100% wool felt for all my future birdies.
These chaps are far sturdier and easier to work with than the ecospun felt birds that I had been making. That’s not to say that the ecospun felt birds are poorer quality, they’re not…these ones just are easier to work with.
I’m extremely happy with these, I love the green felt, and I really wish I could afford one and find a place in the house to put one…maybe one day we’ll have finished renovations and there’ll be a special shelf just for me.
