Let’s talk Cardinals! Shall we ?

Did you know that this majestic bird is also the center of many beliefs. Many people believe the sighting of a cardinal can be a sign of good luck, loyalty, or even a spiritual message? People believe that Cardinals appear when angels are near. … When God sends a cardinal, it’s a visitor from heaven. Cardinals appear when loved ones are near. When you keep seeing a certain type of bird, it is usually a heaven-sent messenger of love for you. How cool is that ? Whatever you believe in that or not it is a fun fact to know

Supplies needed to create Red Cardinal yarn Bird

  • yarn in 2 colors ..red and black
  • embellishments

If you watched my other bird tutorial you know I had 3 equal parts of yarn. For this bird I decided to have 2 parts of yarn in 7 inches . They are slightly different in colors and thickens. One that has two colors was half full then solid one. Picture below shows it well.
