Owls a plenty

Literally a pile of cheery owl ornaments to hang from the tree. These are a brand new design developed especially for the holiday fairs. The hangers slip out of the top ribbon loops, so these little friends can travel in pockets and bags all year long! This is such a popular image I included the Pattern and Step by Step to make these little guys in my newest book Stitched Whimsy.

These colorful owls were adapted in fabric from a felt design I originally created for the fall issue of Crafts n' Things. You can find the original pattern in the magazine. I used National non woven felt for their wings and eye accents, be on the look out for their earth friendly bamboo line of felt. Also discovered that America Crafts felt flowers were the perfect embellishment for their eyes. The black faceted button eyes I picked at JoAnn's. Their bottoms are weight with dry beans to help them stand at attention and keep an eye on the room.

Selling them at the fair this weekend!
