They are one of the most beautiful species of birds that frequent our feeders.
Did you know that cardinals mate for life? They always come in pairs but take their turn at the feeders. If you see one then you know that their mate is not too far away, waiting patiently for their turn.
My gift to you this Christmas season are the patterns for these two cardinal ornaments I made last night.
I made mine from wool but you can certainly make them from cotton fabric if you so desire. Another option would be to make some in shades of blue as well because blue jays have a similar shape and size.
