Quill Pen

What you need

Washed feather
Fabric dye


Mix up the fabric dye according the the packet instructions.

Prepare your feather by laying it face down on a cutting board and cutting it at an angle. Then cut off a tiny piece of the tip to make the quill. Put a small slit right near the end of the quill down the centre for the ink to flow.

Place the dye into a small pot and start writing.

It will take sometime to get used to writing with the pen but it will be worth it.


  1. Smart craft! This will be quite a unique pen at school or the office! Also try the ink from another pen and place it in a large hollow feather already mentioned by a guest. -Tinta

  2. an easier way is to hollow out the middle of a large feather and take the ink from whichever colour pen and slide it into the hollow feather.

  3. This is a easy I didn’t know that you could use feathers for pens. Thanks alot.
