19 Free Bird Projects to Sew!

I Love Birds! I think because they represent freedom- they just fly where ever their little hearts desire! They also sing- I love listening to their songs! I have several bird song CD’s which I enjoy listening to. Now, here’s something that may be odd- I love outdoor birds, but birds indoors in cages kind of freak me out a little! I have no idea why :)

Here are some birds which you can keep and give as gifts all year round- they don’t sing, but they sure are cute!! 

(Please note- as of the writing of this post, I have checked and all links and downloads work. If you are having a problem with a particular website/download/pattern, please contact the owner of that website. Thank you.)

    Trying to click on the “remote” owl…it’s not opening the pattern design so I can print it. Am I not finding/doing it right?

    Thank you, thank you! I love the patterns! I love birds, too. I love to sit outside when it’s cooler, watch the birds and listen to them chirping. We have 3 bird feeders, 2 large suet feeder and at present 4 hummingbird feeders. I usually have to add 2 or 3 more hummingbird feeders before the summer is over. I’m so thankful we can afford to feed the birds.

    Thank you so much for the free patterns, I can’t decide which to sew first!s

    Like you I get really upset to see birds in cages and I know why. We most envy their ability to fly but feel it is ok to put them in cages because we “love”them! Really?

    Thanks for all the wonderful links for bird freebies. Many of them are just SEW cute. Can’t wait to make them.

    Love the patterns, however, the one for the bird sculpture with the feet, when you go to the site and then click on the “red” lettering, it takes you to a scrib site and you cannot download the pattern without subscribing to scrib. I wanted to download to print later when my printer arrives from the states, as I just moved to Ecuador and do not have access to a printer. Just thought you’d like to know. Thanks again.

    Love the patterns but having trouble printing. Plus, I only wanted to get two of the patterns but you have to print ALL of the patterns, pictures and templates. Thanks any way for pictures.

    I’m a newbie when it comes to sewing. I think I’m ready to move from scrunchies. These awesome patters have me extremely inspired to keep learning. Thanks for sharing!!!
