Folk Embroidered Felt Birds

  • Corinne's book is sure to delight all those who are love our feathered friends. 

    She has created 20 gorgeous bird projects for you to make using felt and her signature folk-inspired embroidered embellishment. Designs include a flamboyant peacock, a vibrant flamingo and a fairy tale swan. 

    As ever, Corinne’s inspiration comes from traditional Scandinavian Folk embroidery and the beauty of nature and wildlife around us.

    The book includes full scale templates, a comprehensive techniques section, a guide to embroidery stitches and beautifully clear step by step illustrations to accompany every project. 

    The projects vary in difficulty but all are accessible to beginners and more experienced crafters. 

    To complement the book you can buy a starter bundle of felt, with selected colours to make the birds, and we also sell the brown florist's tape used to make the wire legs and feet of the birds in the book.

    Alternatively, you can buy our individual 9” (22.5 cm) squares of felt for the birds you wish to make.
