Three owl-y friends, hanging out on the porch. Hurray for Spring!
I love a great paisley, especially a knit paisley on an owl! (spoiler alert- I have more owl paisley coming…)
The owl is sitting among the tulips which are just finishing up. Those tulips- it has to be 20 years since I planted them and they still thrive. Amazing.
Here are the first two.
I like working on these brown owls. All the fabrics I’m using have memories.
I love this owl face with it’s shaggy alpaca mask.
Alpaca sweater body and face, cashmere wings= super soft owl!
There are 2 more owls to post about- that’ll be tomorrow. Here they all are, friends on a chair.
Here they are, waiting patiently to get their photos taken. Owls in a basket!
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.
Hoot! It is so much fun to pull out the bins and pick through all the colors and textures and put them all together to make something with a unique personality.
It is owl time around here. I’m making a variety, a group, a parliament, of owls!
Yes, there are more men but I made these too.
