I started out making birds for the mobile I wrote about last week but they just weren’t right. I was using a pattern from sock and glove which looked great in the book but rubbish when I did it. So I started mucking around with leftovers to make this little owl. I’m quite taken with him! He needs some wings, and his feet aren’t quite right but as a prototype I think he’s got potential.
Since 2007 Craft Schmaft, by Claire Waring, has been a blog dedicated to making happy. Here I share my love of sewing, stitching and all things handmade. You’ll also find travel tales, craft fails and a rather large fabric addiction.
