In my Mom’s later sewing years, the 1980′s and 90′s, she used a lot of beige and brown. When I make the brown owls, many of the fabrics are from her scraps and/or stash. I love thinking about the beautiful clothes she’d made from them.

Pretty much everything on this one is directly from Mom’s attic.

This one is a mix of newer and older- wovens from Mom, knit (wings and cap) is a reclaimed sweater.
