Felt Greenfinches Tutorial (& a Greenfinch Embroidery Pattern!)

Another week, another new pattern in my shops! I am on a ROLL at the moment.

My latest printable PDF pattern is based on a lovely British garden bird: the greenfinch!

The PDF file includes detailed step by step instructions for sewing felt greenfinch brooches and ornaments. There are lots of tips, loads of step photos, and three easy-to-print sizes of the templates so you can easily make bigger greenfinches.

I've made and sold so many felt birds over the years, I just adore them! Here are a few I stitched along with some robins (also available as a pattern in my shops).

When you buy any patterns from my shops you have my permission to use them to make handmade things to sell at craft fairs or online, so maybe you'll be stitching up a whole batch of greenfinches soon?

As well as the felt version, I've included a greenfinch embroidery pattern. This is lovely and easy to sew with backstitch and looks fab framed in a 5 inch embroidery hoop.

My bird patterns have been works in progress for a while (I shared this in-progress pic of the greenfinch embroidery last spring, I think!), life has rather got in the way of me finishing them but I hope you'll think they're worth the wait. I'm hoping to have lots more added to my shops in 2020!
