Now, lots of owls.
It never ceases to amaze me that I cut these all out using the same template and yet, when I stuff them up, it is always a surprise to see how they come out! Tall, short, chubby, slim.
Well first, Happy Mother’s Day to all who are celebrating! And now some snowy owls or maybe I should call them owls with no ears…
Both of these owls are incredibly soft, made with cashmere, angora, and alpaca, and I am sure some wool too.
This one has eye brows.
And this one isn’t terribly snowy at all!
Here are his/her grey and white striped wings-
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.
