i have had a little addiction of late. i think we all get them from time to time. mine is concerning owls.
it came from a very productive trip to a fabric shop and me sitting in my sewing room surrounded by beautiful felt, despairing cos i had all this material and couldn't think of one thing to make. i was doodling on some paper, on the verge of tears (ridiculous i know but little things can make me very emotional these days) and i drew an OWL. then i thought 'hang on', this might look a little bit sweet if it was made out of felt!
and so an owl was born.
after a little while, this descended into a whole clan of owls.
they are made purely from felt with buttons for eyes. the inside of their wings and their backs are the same colour as their tummies. you can see one of the guys showing off his wings here-
i actually had a real giggle taking photos of these owls. they make me laugh, and especially the one on the picture above at the far back right who's fallen over-that's Larry, he's a real joker!
here he is again in his natural habitat.
i like to think that if owls weren't massively strong and could rip your face off, i would have one as a pet.
