This sweet nesting blue bird pin cushion will make the perfect addition to your sewing area!
The punch needle pattern includes instructions for making both the 3D bird and the cotton nest.
Nesting Blue Bird Punch Needle Pattern:
The blue bird was punched using 3 strands of both Valdani and DMC embroidery flosses.
The punched bird measures about four and a fourth inches long and about one and a half inches tall.
It has been finished with a 3D wing that is loose at the tip and a bead eye.
Felted wool has been used for the back of the bird and the wing.
The bird’s snug nest that can double as a pin cushion has been made from a cotton quilting fabric.
Note: Putting pins in the punched part of the bird could lead to snags in the loops.
For best results, use only the nest as a pin cushion.
Get the Punch Needle Pattern:

Since so many of us crafters have a stash of fabrics, the punch needle kit does NOT include the quilting cotton or the pearl cotton thread for the nest.
