Semi-Beaded Song Sparrow

Today, I want to show you a new bird I started beading – a Song Sparrow!

Sparrows are very common birds, and they seem to follow me everywhere. I see them every morning when I go walking at the beach:) So, I cut out some felt & stitched on Japanese size 15 seed beads. I am using several shades of brown, gray, and cream. Next I need to add wire legs! How does he look? :D

Also this weekend, I will be working on an order for my Etsy shop – another beaded Bichon-Frise pin. I’d better get back to doing beadwork! :O

  1. When I was a little girl, we called them “Spatzen”…. which I learned later was German for “sparrow.”

  2. Your bird is WONDERFUL!!! Although, I wouldn’t expect less from you! Love your work!!!

  3. Hi Diane, it’s been a long time since I visited your blog, so I’ve just spent the last 15 minutes reading back over the past 20 pages! My old PC wasn’t able to access a lot of my favorite blogs, but now I have a newer model which is a lot faster, and more versatile. I just adore the motorbike! Wish we could fly over to attend that exhibition – sounds fantastic. And your little black scottie dog is sooooooooo cute! As is this sparrow. You are so creative : – )

  4. Hi Diana,

    Your choice of colours gives a distinct look to the piece.

    Take care,

    José
