Three Little Glitter Birds

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

These little birds are so easy to make that you don't even need a pattern. I put them on a long sleeve onesie for a baby, but they would be cute so many other places. How about on an adult sleeve? Down a pantleg? The front of a hoodie? On a notebook? You can make them any size. Make them smaller and put them on a hat, or on shoes. Any Nature Girl will love these little birdies.

You need:

  • Black onesie (or any surface)
  • Sparkle 21: Blue Suede Sparkle, Leaf Sparkle, Night Sparkle
  • Straight pin
  • Chalk pencil
  • something round to trace (I used a glue bottle) This is optional. Feel free to freehand a half circle.
Try this:

1. Use chalk pencil to draw three half circles on shirt.

2. Outline with Blue Suede.

3. Add Night Sparkle legs. For an eye, add a Leaf Sparkle dot with a smaller Night Sparkle dot on top of it.

4. Make feathers by making a dot of Blue Suede, place a straight pin in the center, drag out to make a teardrop shape.

5. Print tweet, chirp, peep under the birds.

Very tweet.
Glitter on!
