I made this for a swap. My hubby is an avid hunter who respects the life of the animals and likes to use as much as possible from the animal. I use a lot of the feathers in my crafting. They are beautifully colored and very shiny.
The button in the middle is vintage and solid glass.
I love how this turned out and plan on making more. The feathers are fabritaced onto a felt circle and then the circle is sewn onto a barrette.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

I love that the two of you are using as much of the animal as possible - it would be a shame to waste such beautiful feathers.
Quick question; how do you clean the feathers?

After hubby plucks the bird I collect the feathers and lay them out on newspaper in the sun for a couple hours. I just check them closely for debris and bugs and then package them up in zip locks for crafting purposes. I've never had a problem with them being buggy or dirty.

So very pretty! My dad hunts pheasent as well and we use the feathers for cat toys and wreaths...this is a whole new way to use them =)  It would be great with an Audrey Hepburn type LBD!
