I finished my birdhouses!
If you look at my previous post, you will see pics of my birdhouses before they were felted and finished. It is a multi-step process to finish these little guys.
First thing after knitting them is to machine felt them. Then, I air dry them. Once dried, I get to see which of these I want to do additional needle felting on. I of course have to needle felt the "hole" in each of these. On a few of these, I added polka dots to the roofs. Then, I have to go out and gather the twig perch. Stuff with fiberfill. Add the ribbon to hang from.
And then, before I can do anything else, I have to take pics! Here they are. If you are interested, a few pair are for sale at http://www.thatissocute.etsy.com/
