whiplash – accessories

whipup For Accessory Month at whiplash I made these little wool felt tassel birds ( design category I guess). They’re an accessory for a doorknob or hook or peg or bedpost or lamp or branch etc., etc. I was gonna take a few pictures of them accessorizing various things around here but I ran out of steam and out of light. Just like the acorn, I’m giving them away. If you’d like to have one just leave a comment to this post with your color preference. I’ll pick three names next Friday, 10/20, first name picked will get their color choice.






  1. ok, i want in…. these are gorgeous ann – as usual your work is wonderful. and, i wouldn’t care what color if i am lucky enough to have a choice…

  2. These are so delightful! Beautiful beautiful job! I would be thrilled to call one of these my own!

  3. Loved the acorn, and these are charming in their own totally different, cheery way. I’d love a chance to display one in my own home, thanks!

  4. oh they are lovely!
    i like surprises, so any one will do!!
    i’m crossing my fingers……

  5. I just got here…somehow (lost track) and your work is so amazing and wonderful! I love the 100 horses and am gobsmacked that every horse has a name! The little birds are very sweet. I’d like one in any color!

  6. Oh I would LOVE a bird…. Oh my, how generous. I cannot pick a color though, I’d rather be surprised…

  7. adorable birds — really nice shapes and the long tail feathers look great! it’s too hard for me to choose a color, i’d love any one of them. 🙂

  8. I think its all been said except put my name in the hat. And I’ll say again anyway your a talented woman and I love all of these little birds. Can’t wait to see who the lucky winner will be.

  9. Those are so sweet! My favorite is the orange & pink bird. I have a link saved to your boats for “Dream Nursery Accessory”. :o)

  10. So lovely and cheery! And no cage mess to clean up! I would love one in any color.

  11. I’m a huge fan of your little birds and your horses. The amount of horses you did is really astounding. I showed my husband your little clip and we both blinked in amazement. More people need to make one hundred horses: the world might just get a little more joyous (and preoccupied!).

    I have to admit of these little birdies, my favorite is the blue.

    Thanks for making all the nifty stuff you do. I’m a big fan!

  12. I like your work very much and i would be very happy to have one of these wonderful birds.
    Thank you for sharing all these ships and birds with us…

  13. Lovely! your work is great. I enjoyed the 100 horses. The birds are wonderful.As for the colour, surprises are nice.

  14. Oh, my I would love to have one! Any color would be fine, but the blue is my favorite. They are charming!

  15. oooo, they are soooo nice!! i`d love to have one too! could you give us the pattern? i`ve just started with felt, yesterday i made Heather Baill`s Bitty Booties and they were such fun to sew!

  16. I love these! My daughter Maggie is two sitting on my lap saying more birdies MaMa! The orange/pink would look perfect in her room! 😉

  17. Ann-

    These are beautiful! I stumbled upon your website earlier today, and the ships are absolutely amazing! Regarding these 3 birds, your offer is wonderful; any of the three would be lovely.

    Have a good day.

  18. love, love, love them all – brown would work best for us! Your creations are magnificent! Thanks for considering me (& my gurlz)

  19. Dear Ann,

    I just discovered your blog this morning…what a gift! I will visit regularly now to be inspired and delighted with your creations and your sweet spirit. If I should be so fortunate as to have my name chosen, the brown bird would be my first choice.

    Wishing you well!

  20. Oh. My. Goodness! I just discovered your blog, and am so happy I did. I’m normally not one to sign up for a give-away….especially on the first visit…but those little birdies are fantastic! I’d love to have my name added to the pool. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!

  21. These are truly beautiful. Really, just lovely. Needless to say, I’d love to have one.
