I had no idea you could do such detail so small when needle felting! I love the birds! I want them to sit in my potted rosemary bush....

These are really wonderful. The bluebird looks like it really is sitting on your finger. I have not tried needle felting yet, but I assume you have a wondeful pair of tweezers to protect you crafty fingers. Thanks for posting!

Thanks guys! 

The bitty mouse is my favorite too...he was the fastest/easiest to make and I was a weebit surprised when he actually looked like a mouse  Roll Eyes He's a tiny little bugger and I kept dropping him and having to search in the cracks of my wood floor.

Yup, they're needle felted wool.  Nope, no tweezers.  Yup, I poked me fingers repeatedly. 

They're intended for a dollhouse or mini garden scene, but I really dig the pendant idea.  Plotting this evening's craft...

Jayneysews, tell your daughter to try some!  Just start with a poof of wool about the size of a quarter and poke poke poke until it's bird shaped.  This takes a while, but gently shaping with first a coarse needle and then a fine one until it's just right really pays off.  Then roll two pieces of wool into balls about the size of a seed bead and wiggle into the head with the needle until it sticks for eyes.  Roll another tiny piece into a snake with a bit of fluff left on the end and gently poke into the beak area.  Follow that up with a shower and a shave (a snip with some tiny scissors to reduce fuzzies and a little hot water and dish soap rubbed gently on the main portion of the bird to smooth it out).  Post pics please if she does some!!
