SEVEN STEPS TO KNIT A BIRDHOUSE

Step 1:  We will first knit up the panels for each side of the BIRDHOUSE, including the roof.  I thought it would be fun to knit in different colors and knitting stitches.  This is where you can really let your creativity soar!

Step 2:  Attach the SIDE panels of our BIRDHOUSE by simply tacking them together with yarn using my tapestry needle.

Step 3: Add the BACK of our BIRDHOUSE by attaching it to the sides.

Step 4:  Now, we can add our ROOF, which was knitted in the STAR STITCH.  Adding the roof allows us to bring that top triangle piece up and attach those pieces together.

Step 5: Attach the front panel.  Simply stretch your knitted piece so the little landing stick can pop out.

Step 6:  The top triangle and opening area presented a tricky situation.  I decided to knit up some I-Cords and fit them into the area in fun swirly connected ways.  Pretty unique!

Step 7:  Lastly, add a sweet bright white edge to the bottom of our BIRDHOUSE.  Add any special decorative touches.  I added this little HEART SHAPE.
