Plushie Bird Magnets

Simple sewing projects like these Plushie Bird Magnets from Heather Valentine are a great way to use up that old scrap fabric you have lying around. Mix and match different colors and patterns to decorate your fridge! These little birdies would also make cute gift tags, pins, or potpourri satchels.

Plushie Bird Magnets


  • Scraps of fabric
  • Bits of felt
  • Mod Podge
  • Poly fill
  • Button magnet
  • Glue gun
  • Pattern


  1. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to your pressed scraps to "stiffen" the fabric and give it more texture.
  2. After everything is dry, cut one bird from fun fabric and one bird from coordinating felt. Cut one wing in fabric of your choice. (I used felt.)
  3. Stitch wing to body. For my little guys and gals, I used a decorative blanket stitch on my trusty machine and a contrast thread color.
  4. Then--super simple--match your front and back birdies together and straight stitch them together leaving a 1-inch opening at the bottom. Stuff with poly fill. Be careful not to over-feed your birds; they will get fat! Stitch the opening closed.
  5. With your trusty glue gun in hand, apply a dab of glue at the center and attach your button magnet.
