... so for a bit of relaxation this weekend I got out my felting tools and made myself a phone case. The idea came from Etsy but I designed the owl to fit my own quirky sense of fun :)
I just love the distressed look you get when felting sheer fabrics so used my hand felting tool to embellish a circle for each eye, the wings and the body. I then hand sewed the eyes and beak together, something I find very relaxing, before sewing the pouch together with the sketchy machine sewing I so enjoy.
I don't 'do' neat, specific sewing on my machine as the slightest wrong stitch would really bug me, but I love the look of sketchy, mad stitching and enjoy doing it too.
Now to design some little keyring owls for the Advent Fair at church on Saturday...watch this space :)
