Felt Owl

My first attemp at a felted owl!!

I followed instructions loosely from this very handy blog: http://savingartistryan.wordpress.com/2011/01/27/felt-owl-brooch/
I haven’t made this as a brooch though as its a Christmas present for my friend, LW, and as she is so fashionable I doubt she would wear one of my creations. Yet. Wait till I get better!!

As I didn’t make it as a brooch I had to improvise on some of the instructions.. I didnt want any knots or thread showing on the back.. so I sewed the eyes on before pulling it together. I also attached a ribbon under the beak so the owl can hang somewhere nice.

I really enjoyed making this and it didnt even take long! I will definitely be making more, although I think I will try and make my owl rounder, (as to me that constitutes cuteness).. and if I’m not making them as brooches I think I should stuff them a little to give them more depth.

I’m meeting up with some of my girls tomorrow for a Crafternoon, where we will all get stuck into creativities and have a good old chat. I’m really looking forward to it, especially now as I can bring a few things to the table. For my next project I’m going to make 3 of these owls, stuffed and all hanging in a vertical row. That will be the final Christmas present for my mum, so I’ll need to choose sensible colours that will compliment her house – or else she wont hang it up!

Happy weekend everyone! Hope yours is as productive as mine hopefully will be 🙂
