I make these birds using a pattern created exclusively for Spool Sewing by Michael Fulkerson. I also made a tutorial on how to use the pattern and whip up your own little Aviary of scrap birds on my blog, here:
I love these birds because they are an amazing use of scraps. It only requires two pieces of fabric, one that is 7" by 3", and one that is 9" by 3". What’s not to love! I also love doing them because it creates a cute little gallery of my past projects, and they make excellent pet toys. See, Tiny Tiger LOVES his!
cotton fabric, cotton batting. All thrifted or left over from other projects. Score.
