If this bird looks familiar to you, that's because you probably saw it on Spool back in 2008 (has it been that long?). I've always admired the pattern but was never sure what to do with the birds until now.
For this ornament I shrunk down the pattern to 75% because I was concerned it would be too big for a Christmas ornament. Now that I've made it, I think the original size will work just fine.
For the pattern visit the Spool Blog and look for the bird pattern in the right sidebar.
What ornaments are you guys making for Christmas? Don't pretend you haven't thought about it. I know some of you started in July or earlier!
