" Scrappy owl "
6 x 5 "
I decided to make myself another owl.
As i had sold my pocket owl .This is a
larger version - made from a linen napkin
i got in a sale .






felt eyes and vintage buttons


These were scrap pieces from another
sewing project - instead of putting them or throwing
them away - i made a feather skirt for her ;o)
and sewed 2 rows of assorted scrap pieces .
They are from the vintage patchwork quilt
i purchased months ago .


Then i put some tufts of hair on top - using
knitting wool and tied a seam binding bow .










I trimmed her feathered skirt after
completing her - and ended up with yet
more tiny pieces . So i made this tag straight
afterwards - otherwise i would have binned them
or they would have got lost somewhere !!
Modge podged on , then zig zag sewn edges .



I haven`t named her - yet -
but Autumn comes to mind !!

I like the name Autumn for your owl, and such a great way to use up scraps of fabric, on the tag too :)
