2. Hanging Love Birds

This is sort of a project mashup. To make the birds, follow the bird sewing instructions for this bird mobile. Then, you’ll cut out and embellish your heart for the center using your favorite recycled felt and hand stitch the birds’ beaks to either side of the heart. To finish, use an embroidery needle to string bakers twine or embroidery thread through the birds’ backs, tie a knot, and you’re ready to hang!
