What do you do when you have a ton of scraps?

You make birds!

I looked around and found so many cute ideas.

Denise from Living Life Creatively Shows you how.

You can also purchase her patterns here.

I just wanted to wing it so I made a pattern of my own.

Let's not talk about how many I had to make before they started looking like birds...ha!.

Trust me, her pattern is so worth it!

I used some left over chenille for this little guy.

He almost looks as though he is sporting a mohawk....hahahah!

Wouldn't these look so cute on top of presents.

I'm thinking about making a pair and sewing them together..."kissing"


Right now I'm still trying to perfect my feet.

That's the hard part for me.

I'm thinking maybe I should use a bit thicker wire.

Want to see more?

You can fly over here and see some real cuties!
