This is a felt swallow I made for my niece’s birthday. She requested a bird and the only free pattern I could find was for a small mobile. I blew the pattern up, added wings, and altered the tail to make it a swallow.
The day I gave it to her I had to whip up two smaller ones, as her sister and brother both wanted one. I forgot to take pictures of those ones.
