Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Felt: turquoise, blue, green
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Embroidery floss
  • Ruler
  • Peacock feathers

  • Peacock pattern template
  • Beads & jewels (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cut the bookmark shapes from felt, using the pattern templates. To print the patterns, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above).
  2. Braid the embroidery floss. Create 4 braided strands, each 15" long.
  3. Tie a peacock feather to the first strand. Make a simple square knot around the quill of the feather to secure.
  4. Continue to tie square knots to make a spiral shape around the quill until it’s secure. Trim extra thread. Option: String on beads if desired.
  5. Sew together the peacock body. Stack the felt pieces as shown in the photo. Place the four braided & feathered strands between the two main body pieces. Pin everything in place. Hand-stitch around the perimeter.
  6. Add final touches like extra stitching, jewels or feathers. Add a jeweled eye & a little feather to the head. Leave the braided strands free, or braid them together as desired.
