 Christmas Bird Help

Make in the hoop  Christmas Bird help.


 


Start with dyeing your cotton fabric, use tea bags and salt, or cheap instant coffee and salt for a slightly deeper colour. For the crinkled ribbon, use polyester seam binding dyed in tea, left squished up to dry.

These images show a quick easy way, using pinking sheers to trim, and a machine or hand sewing to finish after filling with polyester stuffing.

Sew outline and design

Tape hanging ribbon to the back.

Then tape matching fabric to the back of the hoop.Sew the outline again.

 

 

Bunch together your ribbon of choice for the tail. 

Pop from the hoop, carefully trim with pinking sheers, making sure that you do not cut off the hanging loop. fill with lavender or quilt batting. Sew up the opening, having stuffed your ribbon tail in the opening.   I sewed with machine stitches, but hand is fine.
