Feather Directions
santa ornament step 1 STEP 1. Print out your pattern and cut out all the necessary pieces from felt. You’ll want to cut out two main body shapes, and then one of each of the feature shapes (like the beak, etc.). I’m putting together the chickadee, but the process is the same for the cardinal and the blue jay.
