Hello...... well today's post is going to have a TA-Dah moment in it, there hasn't been one of them for a while around here. This is my new make for this years Craft Club exhibition.
The Theme being 'The Owl and the Pussycat'
So it was the perfect opportunity to try out the Lovely Jacquie at Bunny Mummy super cute owl pattern which you can find 'here' it's been on my to make list for a while now.
First I made two circle's for the owls body, using pretty shades of Stylecraft Special DK from my statsh
It's such a easy and fab tutorial to follow
and quite quickly I had something that was starting to look very much like a owl
I just needed to make a couple of eyes, my owl is going to have sparkly eyes as that's the only white yarn I had, but you can never have too much sparkle !!
I didn't have any suitable beads for the eyes so instead I stitched on a couple of teeny tiny black pom poms
Then all that was needed was a bit of stuffing and some cute little tufty ears, I did make the wings to go on my Owlie but decided I prefered my little Owl just as it was.
my Bunny Mummy Owl.
All I need to do now is either make a Pussycat or just stick with the Owl theme and make lots of owls to sit in a tree together, next up maybe a felt owl.
As for books I'm still reading Philippa Gregory's Virgin Earth, it's taking me a while to finish this one mainly as I keep starting new books.
