I love this entire outfit (at right), but I'm not super confident I could pull off wearing a throw blanket as a skirt.
These friendly creatures are made of excelsior wrapped with thread and then painted, a process that sounds frustrating, time consuming, and very messy. But just look at the results! ( I am skeptical that anyone ever found this craft worth doing. Sorry, 1970.)
I genuinely love these felt birds. This craft could run in a modern magazine. There's a pattern in the back of the magazine for each bird; I've included one here. Get out your tracing paper!
Stay tuned for a part two to this post! There's too much goodness in here for just one.
