No two birds are the same, in nature and when you make these adorable scribble appliqué bird ornaments! All you need is some scraps of fabric (preferably with fusible web already on the back), a little felt, small piece of ribbon and one bead or sequin for the eye! Perfect project for beginners. Bonus, this is a super quick and easy project, too! Scribble appliqué is a raw edge appliqué technique.
This project uses fabrics that already have fusible web applied to the back of the fabric. If you don’t have some scraps lying around, go ahead and pre-fuse three fabrics for the bird ornament.
Sketch out different bird shapes – from dove to quail, owls and finch. Have fun adding different wings and feathers to make the birds your own. This is just a sample of how you can be creative using some scraps of fabric and ribbon to make some ornaments.

Why is it called scribble appliqué?
Because it is just like scribbling or doodling with your sewing machine needle! I prefer to use black thread, similar to sketching with a black pen. The black defines the shapes and edges of your design.
Use this technique for any type of raw appliqué project and have some fun. I also used this when making these kitchen towels. It’s a super fun technique, and I love the fact that the messier your stitching line, really it looks better! No need for perfection, making this a quick project perfect for beginners!
