These are my redesign of the owls that I made for the Country Living show back in November.
Whilst I was preparing for BCTF I realised that with the change in the seasons, I didn't want to work with the wools and tweeds that I made the previous owls out of.
So I decided to make them out of the linens that I've also used for my blouses and cushions, which feels much more summery.
Because the linen is plain (unlike the tweeds) I also felt that they needed more detail, so I gave them wings.
The owls come in two sizes and are stuffed with polyfil and a little rice bag to weigh them down.
To be honest, I was never really happy with my wool owls, but these one's make me smile.
And Bella and Lily (who opinions are always seek) say they like these more than anything else I have made! Which also makes me smile.
