I had a lot of fun making these little guys – and discovered that you can, indeed, rubber stamp on felt. I had some craft ink pads lying around from back when I had enough time to actually do crafts on a regular basis (which explains the expedition I needed to take through the closet to find it. I swear I was *this* close to Narnia).
The basic idea comes from the current (Dec) issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors. I did my first bird just by eye-balling the pictures of their birds, then laughed when I turned the page and found that they’d actually provided a PATTERN, with INSTRUCTIONS and everything. Luxury.
Anyway, these little guys are super fun to do, and go very, very quickly. I’m already thinking I will have to do an updated version this spring. Blues and yellows, perhaps?
