Twit Twoo

 

TwitTwooHappy Halloween to you all

I made this little snowy owl over the school holiday. It is the first time I have sew with felt in literally decades. I am sure my last attempt was a blanket stitch purse as a Brownie! This wool felt really is a delight to stitch with, so forgiving. I simply sketched a snowy owl, snipped him out and dusted down the blanket stitching. The only tricky part were his legs. I did attempt to fashion my own from wire, they were rather mangled but at least I was able to work out if I could get him to stand up. His new legs were some I found at the Knitting and Stitching Show and after clipping back, painting and wrapping his claws in embroidery thread they worked a treat.
