Pajaritos de Navidad (Christmas Birdies)

These lovely little doves come from one of my favorite books, "Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts" by Joelle Hoverson.

The birds have just three pieces. I do find they require a bit of manipulation to get the nose and tail line up right however, but if you can figure that much out, a quick little project that can be finished in 20 minutes or so.

I leave a little opening at the side to stuff the birdies and then sew them up by hand.

A pretty little gift for your own tree or as  a gift for a friend's.
