Because owls are so undeniably cool, and because their popularity never seems to wane amongst small kids (and big ones) I decided to develop my own owl templates to use for both general applique and for decorating notebooks, cards and other paper-crafty stuff.
Here are some mother and baby owl notebooks made from wool felt, fabric and my very special wooden buttons with the little stitchy design around the perimeter. I got a batch of these from All Buttons Great and Small (they make great softie eyes).
The two pink and green Freshcut fabrics are my favourite designs/colourway from that range. Shame that (according to Heather) Freshcut is now out of production. I do, however, love her new ranges and am making some dresses for the girls in the Pop Garden and Bijoux fabrics which I'll show soon.
