HOOT HOOT CUTE LITTLE OWLS
Felt & crochet mum & baby wall hanging, hand sown.
This is a simple but effective wall hanging or mobile for a babies room. I packed a bit of lavender in mine to give it a nice smell as it was for my bedroom & if you have trouble sleeping lavender has relaxation benefits to aid sleep and its meant to keep moths away, so I'm told. It would also make a super mothers day present.
Things you will need to make this:
|I brought this old table cloth from the salvation army shop, the round circles make great owl eyes.|
- Scissors & sowing needle
- cream & brown thread
- vintage crochet for the owl face or lace
- cream felt about 2 A4 sheets & a small bit of brown felt for the feet
- two beads
- cord to hang & link the owls
- stuffing to fill & optional some dried lavender (I brought my own lavender plant and dry my own, it works out cheaper in the long run)
|This is the owl layout and the shapes you will need to cut out.|
Step two- cut out the feet, you will need two for the mummy owl. This is from the brown felt. Step three- cut out the owl eyes from the table cloth or lace, i just followed the shapes that were in the pattern, you will need a set for the mummy owl & baby owl. Step four- cut enough lenght of cord to loop over and hang the owl, a second bit to attach the mum owl to baby& a third bit to dangle the beads from.
Step five- sow it all together. Not forgetting to stuff as you go & if you like add the dryed lavender to give it a nice smell.
