Easter Birds

These little birds were Easter gifts at our house. They were surprisingly easy to make and went over better than I expected! (I keep waiting for the kids to get sick of handmade stuff, but thankfully it's not happening!) The bird pattern is free from here. The nests are knitted and felted. I basically just made a small hat and felted it, super easy as well. I used a worsted weight yarn with size 10 1/2 needles so it went rather quickly.

These are so sweet! Easy to see why kids would love these, Roxanne. Smart kids to know just how extra special handmade gifts are.
