  2. Braid the embroidery floss. Create 4 braided strands, each 15" long.
  3. Tie a peacock feather on to each strand. Make a simple square knot around the quill of the feather to secure and repeat knot until it’s secure.
  4. Trim extra thread. Option: String on beads if desired.
  5. Stack the cut felt pieces as shown in the photo and sew together the peacock body.
  6.  Place the four braided & feathered strands between the two main body pieces. Pin everything in place. Hand-stitch around the perimeter.
