Pom-Pom & Felt Cockatoos


  1. If you haven’t already, become a Lia Griffith Annual Member. This gives you access to unlimited SVG downloads!
  2. Gather tools and materials.
  3. Make 2 pom-poms for the bird – Wrap the smallest pom-pom maker with pink yarn, and the bigger one with 3/4 white and 1/4 pink yarn.
  4. Finish making the pom poms and trim evenly.
  5. Tie the head and body together with the pink part of the body meeting the head. Trim the ends. You can also just trim o the ties first and glue the head to the body to get it in the correct spot.
  6. Cut out felt according to the pattern. Micro-tip scissors makes cutting out the small detailed pieces easier.
  7. Glue together the beak and head feathers as shown, so that they are double-sided.
  8. Part the yarn in the middle of the head and glue on the beak and feathers.
  9. Trim away the yarn a bit and glue on the beads for the eyes. You can give the face a little more shape with the smaller scissors.
  10. Glue together the tail and wing pieces as shown.
  11. Part the yarn at the base of bird and glue on the tail feathers.
  12. Glue the tops of the wings to the side of the bird and the two feet under the body.
  13. Make a classic cockatoo using all white yarn and yellow felt instead of pink.
