Owls

Not quite sure how, but I appear to have developed a little thing for owls.
I loved this owl fabric from fabric rehab and made a little purse lined with lovely felt from the beautiful Annie, I thought this would be a nice way to stash my phone or ipod as the felt lining will protect it. I like to keep my memory sticks in a little pouch too. I must say it was very hard to turn through with having a felt lining (hence the oddly angled top).



I then made a couple of larger pouches, that would be a good size for a hearty makeup bag or a general store it all, which I use you know the thing, pens, chewing gum, painkillers etc.



Again I used owls, the Michael Miller Hoot fabric, I love it, check out his little face...

There's just something about owls isn't there? I rather like the angled top on the first one as well - it makes things a touch quirkier :)

I've never considered using felt for lining before but I've used fleece. The owls fabric is fantastic. I'm really afraid of real owls tho'.

I love owls, too. They're really kitsch and 70's like, ideal for me. Beautiful makes, so perfectly done. xxx

VintageVicki said...

I like those :)

We have real tawny owls living nearby - often one will sit on my washing line at dusk and watch the world go by - sadly I cannot take a picture - if I move to near to the window he/she flies away :(

Lovely purses, and I think owls make for a great design - they are kind of condensed and cute.

Louise said...

I love owl fabric and the things you have made with it are gorgeous!

Do you sell the things you make on ebay/etsy or anywhere?!

Owls are funny I know someone who is terrified of them! Welcome Louise, I have messaged you but at the moment I don't sell my stuff as such, I just love making it. I guess I will have to at some time as it is taking over my house!
