Today we are celebrating Draw a Bird Day! While it was never declared an official holiday, Draw a Bird Day originated in military hospitals to help soldiers forget war and suffering, and celebrate life. It is celebrated world-wide as a way to express joy for the simplest of things in life.
Apparently, I have a thing about birds too. On my other website, Suzy’s Sitcom, I design and offer many free patterns and it seems that birds are one of my main themes! So in honor of the day, here are 7 of my favorite free bird patterns for you to enjoy!
Zentangle Doodle Peacock Frame from Suzy’s Artsy Craftsy Sitcom
Grab a sharpie pen and a wooden frame! This project takes very few supplies and the exotic peacock pattern is a free download! I’m an executive assistant by day and I do plenty of doodling. Birds are my favorite thing to draw. It can be very calming…
