Birds Of The Sky

Matthew 6:26 - "Look at the birds of the sky: they don't sow or reap or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you worth more than they? "
My mystery project from yesterday is a Gold Finch Bird Feeder.
Here's how simple it was to create:
First, sew on Velcro to create a flap that fold over the opening completely.
Then, sew side seams closed. Next, hole punch 2 holes on the back side of feeder as openings for hanger.

Then, thread thin piece of screen as hanger through holes and sew hanger into circle.

Lastly, fill with Niger Thistle and place on pole and watch for Gold Finch's approval.

Wow! That is so cool Julie! I have some screen from an art class that I could use to make one (or two). I'll have to add that to my growing "to do" list...Have a Merry Christmas!
