I googled for cute plushie bird patterns and mixed 3 patterns for my plushie bird, I wanted the bird to be- small, fluffy and cute!

I've attached a picture of the template I drew, it isn't so hard, you can draw the template easily. I could have drew a simpler version of the template but I didn't want to cause any confusion for the beginner crafters. I've also added numbers of each pieces you'll need to cut.

Just to be clear- the bottom part of the body should be 1.5-2 cm longer than the top body part.

The template includes:
  • Tail: 2 pieces (1 plain fabric, 1 patterned fabric),
  • Wings: 4 pieces (2 plain fabrics, 2 patterned fabrics),
  • Body parts: sides- 2 pieces (both patterned fabrics), top-1 piece (patterned fabric), bottom- 1 piece (plain fabric).
  • Beak: 1 small round piece (orange fabric).
Cut the pieces out of the template and place them on the required fabric, trace around the edges and cut out fabric pieces.
Don't forget to iron the fabric to flatten it.

This is very cute.Well done and explained.But I am wondering how this comes under sew warm?Is it because of the wool?Any idea?

Thanks so much! yes, it's probably because of the wool, I've seen stuffed toys and plushies in sew warm contest so just randomly entered mine :)

I've attached the template I used in step-2, but it's not printable. you can always search online for printable templates or draw one yourself.
