Creature Comfort

My niece recently moved to boarding school and has been feeling a bit homesick so I decided to make her a little friend to keep her company when she is missing home. She loves owls and I had recently found a pattern called 'Who Knew!' by Susie C Shore Designs at Carols of Midland which I thought would be perfect.

I raided my boxes of fabric that I have been collecting since my kids were little and found some lovely bright colours. This was the result...


My niece loved her new friend and I was very happy with how it turned out too. We have decided the next time she comes to visit for the weekend this would be a great project to do together. Luckily I have plenty of fabric stashed away for just such an occasion!

Until next time, happy crafting!
Tracy

The next time you, Andrea, Megs & I all craft together that would be a great project for us to do together. It's gorgeous! Tracee xx

Isn't it though? It only stands a couple of inches tall. I found it stood up quite well on its own before I put the button feet on but then it had to be positioned 'just so' to stay upright. We should definitely organise a craft day soon.
