Live Online Class • Beaded Birds Ornaments

2020-10-29T16:20:01-05:00|0 Comments

An online class to make some of my favorite ornaments. These felt birds are based on ones that I made with my mom when I was 2 years old. She cut the felt, I was in charge of the glue. I’ve updated to add some beaded details with metallic beads and sequins and you’ll learn to do two embroidery stitches. Registration deadline is November 30 so that your materials kit can be mailed to you.

Included in the class fee is a materials kit of everything you’ll need for class except scissors. I have put together some of my favorite materials for you:

• wool/rayon felt

• gold and iridescent sequins, metallic copper beads

• perle cotton embroidery thread

• needle

• stuffing

• and a couple of tools and handout to help you make an awesome bird.

REGISTER HERE.

Once you’ve registered I will mail you the materials kit and email the Zoom link so you can join the live part of the class, where I will show you all of the steps to make your ornament. Class will be held Thursday December 10 • 6-8 pm Central

If you want to make an extra bird or you want to take the class with another person at […]
