Spring is on its way and our feathered friends will be returning back from their winter vacations. And some birds, like the American Goldfinch, braved the Canadian winter with us. Let’s celebrate by creating a cute needle felted Goldfinch charm. You can turn this charm into a keychain, purse dangle, cellphone decoration, necklace...the possibilities are endless!!
Techniques to be learned: Create a core shape using the rolling technique, wing and tail shapes, skewer technique for beak, body detailing, and adding a ring hook to your bird.
