I got busy crafting a baby owl rattle for my tiny new niece, Olive. A couple of bells in a kinder surprise container created the rattling effect and then the baby owl went right on top of a “sock donut”. I used a colour variation embroidery thread for the eyes which was gorgeous – although the instagram photos don’t quite do it justice.
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.
