Yep, I was the one who posted about the cardinals.

I made 24 for an ornament exchange that I go to. They were a big hit, they certainly show off well on a Christmas tree!

Let me know if you have any questions or if I can help you.

Love the cardinals, Flamingo, would you mind posting the patterns for the faces you do on them and also how you make the hats. Thanks

The hats are a tube sewn of ribbed knitting, available at most fabric shops. Sew a tube, roll up the bottom and glue into place, place over the bulb end and tie it off. Simple, really. The faces I copied from the book, Watts Next, by Sandy Holman.
