Patchwork Bird Ornament

Christmas Patchwork Bird Ornament Tutorial | JacquelynneSteves.com

Today, I am sharing a project which is a great way to use up all of your fabric scraps. If you are in a hurry, you can also skip the patchwork step and use a single piece of fabric. I used “modern Christmas brights” for this- dark pink-ish red, lime-y green, and turquoise. Obviously, it would be equally adorable with a traditional palette, or muddy primitives, or how about some old-fashioned Civil War reproduction fabrics?! Or mix in some metallics? Fabulous!

Makes a cute ornament or gift adornment. Or, fill it with lavender for a sachet. What other uses can you think of?

Patchwork Bird Ornament Tutorial

Supplies:

  • Scraps of fabric
  • Polyester filling/stuffing
  • 1/8″ ribbon
  • Embroidery floss
  • For the eye: a tiny button, seed bead, or thread (such as embroidery thread or wool thread) to make a French knot

Print out and cut out pattern pieces.

To make the patchwork version, piece together scraps of fabric until you get a piece about 5 x 9” big.

For the bird’s body: For the patchwork version, place you patchwork piece right sides together with a plain piece of fabric. For the plain bird, place 2 pieces of fabric right sides together, pin pattern to fabric. Cut out around pattern. Remove pattern piece. Pin fabric pieces together.

Sew the pieces together (still right sides together) with a 1/4″ seam allowance, leaving an opening as indicated on pattern piece. Backstitch at beginning and ending of stitching.

Hint for sewing around curves- shorten your stitch length, and as you go around the curves, go slowly and stop every few stitches to lift the foot just slightly and pivot the fabric slightly.

Clip seam allowance at points of tail and beak. Make a few small notches at the curves. This will eliminate some “bulk” of the fabric and make your seams flatter when you turn it right side out.

Turn bird right side out. You can use tweezers to help pull tight areas right side out. Use a wooden skewer to gently push out the points of tail and beak. Press (press the raw edges of the opening in.)

Loosely stuff bird with polyester filling. Use a wooden skewer to push filling into head and tail. Hint: stuff bird with many small pieces of filling, instead of a few large pieces. Hand stitch opening closed with matching thread. Christmas Patchwork Bird Ornament | JacquelynneSteves.com

For wing, place 2 pieces of fabric right sides together, pin pattern to fabric and cut out. Remove pattern piece. Sew together (do not leave an opening.) Trim seam allowances.

Carefully cut a slit about 1 1/4″ long into 1 side of the wing.

Turn right side out; press. Stitch opening closed and/or put a few drops of Fray Check on the raw edges.

Use embroidery floss to stitch around edges of wing- you can do a blanket stitch, whip stitch, or make an X stitch. To make the X stitch, bring up needle through A, bring it around to the back, then bring it up through B (to the right of A). Continue making X’s.

Use matching thread to stitch wing to bird (you don’t have to stitch down the whole wing, just the top.)

For the eye, sew on a tiny button, seed bead, or make a French knot.

Tie a bow around the neck with 1/8″ wide ribbon.

Use a sewing needle to attach a 12″ piece of embroidery thread to top of bird; knot to form a loop for hanging.

    I mainly have the traditional red and green Christmas fabrics. Last year I was lucky and found some with Australian animals on it and made a hexagon table runner.

    Happy days.

    I have an eclectic color scheme for Christmas…so I control the color madness by decorating each room differently. I love color! I tend to keep the traditional reds and greens with my woodsy decorations and then the rainbow of colors everywhere else!

    Most of the things I’ve had for years are traditional red and green. But lately I’m loving the brighter color schemes — especially the lime greens and aquas mixed with reds. So I’ll decorate with a happy mix of all of it.

    I am finishing up a little wall hanging in burgundy reds and creams with a little gold as accents. I am loving these Christmas shades together.

    Thanks for a chance.

    Your bird is cute and look’s quick to make if you use a single piece of fabric. I pretty much stick to the traditional Christmas colors although I do like the other colors that are now being used.

    What a great tutorial, the little birds are so cute. As far as Christmas goes I love mid century mod, traditional and white with blue and silver or white and red. This year I have the vintage Aluminum Pom Pom tree with color wheel up. Next year it might be the white tree or the evergreen, I can never tell until Thanksgiving when I decide what to do.

    I love bright colors. The tree in our office complex is decorated with bright pinks, purples and turquoise – absolutely gorgeous! At home my son decided last year we should use blue and silver – so that’s what we have (for now)!

    I forgot to say how cute your note cards are – you are a very talented lady:)

    I used to decorate with a Victorian theme, soft pinks, greens and blues. This year, though we changed things up and have gone with a metallic theme in golds, coppers, silvers and bronzes. I am loving it! Guess I was ready for a change!

    If I was forced to make a decision it would be Purple and Silver with green to compliment it. But the truth is that whatever my children want to use to decorate for Christmas I am happy with because I think Christmas is about the children not the perfect tree.
    I love your little bird, thanks so much for sharing it.

    I don’t mean to be indecisive, but I like almost all holiday palletes. I just like things to coordinate. Some years I’ve been known to do a traditional red/green in one room and blue/silver in another.
