Hello fellow crafters. Today we are going too make this: Wink


You will need three colurs of wool: black, grey and red. Allso requried items are really tiny glassbeads and thread!
Start out with some of the wool. Make it into three strings, like this:


Place the black one  atop at the red one.  Then tie them  together with a tread, like this:


Put the grey woolstring  across like this:


Bend the black upper string over the crossing grey like this:

And tie it with the thread


Bunch all loose strings together, like this. Try to form the red wool a bit bulky: this will become birdies lil´tummy.
Knot it together with thread.


Now you have a long tail. Way too long! Cut it off!


Boil some water and lat the biride take a really hot bath: this treatment will make it very less valnubare.

Take a bit wire and pinch birdie.
make a hook, so the wire stays,make a loop in this way: http://www.wigjig.com/jewelry-making/loops/pg10.htm





Then sew on the glassbeads, two eyes, one beak, two little feet.


use as you like, for example dangly earrings...^^

Nothing like a bit of paint/glue on the fingernails to show the hallmark of a crafter Smiley

Mynta, your tutorial is really good.
Thanks for sharing.

I'm saying that... with superglue stuck to my fingertips on one hand. They aren't stuck together, just covered with glue. LOL.

Naturalcreation: you really like the tute. Oh, thank you. I was a bit scared to post it: my english really suck and ì´m not allways aware if I got all words right (aka understandible  Wink ) or totally blabbing in some weird "swenglish"....
Eow, superglue-covered fingers, that´s feel freaky.. I usally do that for time to time too. I hate the lack of fingersence when that happens. Cheesy Roll Eyes  Ha, talking about superglue... I discovered that superglue and acrylic felt react together and start devolving heat and smoke! The felt melts away.

Yepp, kirstielynne, those are yours...(explanation to anybody else: me and kirstielynne just swappd items with eachother and I made the tute during the process of making her birds.) I would love to see them on you! ^^  If you allso happend to make some birdies yourself, do post a pic of them as well...  Wink
