Spring-Summer decoration


made using punch needle


When I started this punch needle project, my intention was to do a square piece to include in a frame. But I couldn't find enough colour to fill in the background, so I cut the individual birds, added a felt back and some stuffing. And, put it in a string to make a bird chain. I also made few felt flowers for the branch.

I used Dollar store cotton yarn for this, which was actually $3; Dollar store does not have many one dollar items any more. I liked the fun summer colours in the pack.

  1. Your colourful birds are so sweet! The yellow bird that you gave me last year is hanging by my front window.

    Hooray for the start of yard sale season! You scored some great stuff at your church sale. Last week, I went to a church sale and couldn't resist getting my godson a HUGE fire truck that was only $2. I'm sure his parents will love that. HA!

  2. Oh, I just LOVE birds, I really have a thing with them (made a birds quilt top some time ago... but it's still on the "to be quilted" pile LOL ). Your birdies are fantastic and so cute. Never tried my hands on punch needle, is it difficult to master ??
    And also such GREAT finds at your Church sale ! I'm happy for you :D

    In stitches,

  3. I always enjoy seeing what you are up to. Those birds are so pretty and look similar to the felt ones you made a while ago. Love those dainty hankies from the church sale. I hope you are enjoying spring!
