Feather Directions
quite book step 1 STEP 1. Print out the bird template (we’ll use the rooster for this tutorial). Cut out the basic shape from felt.
quite book step 2 STEP 2. Add different colors to the body of the bird. Add a beak or feet or whatever you’d like. Get creative and make your bird colorful and interesting!
quite book step 3 STEP 3. Cut an 11 X 11 inch piece of cotton for the background. Arrange the pieces of felt into place along with the bird’s feathers and pin it all securely to the cotton background.
quite book step 4 STEP 4. Using a matching thread, carefully sew around each felt element. Be sure to stitch the feathers down well.
quite book step 5 STEP 5. Finish the page by sewing another 11 X 11 inch piece of cotton and a peice of light batting onto the front of the page. Leave a small space unsewn to flip the page back right side out. Once flipped, press the cotton and add any embellishing stitches.
quite book step 6 STEP 6. Repeat the same process with as many birds as you’d like. On the back sides of the pages you could easily add some text (applique, fabric paint, or embroidery would all be great methods) describing the birds. Examples: “Terrific Turkey” & “Pretty Peacock” & “Rowdy Rooster”. Add grommets to each page and lace it all together with some colorful ribbon.
