I spent one evening cutting out circles from wool and felt to embellish some wool scarves that I saved from the thrift store. I hope to have about 6 to take to Artfest for vendor night.
The owl got finished up and is ready for stuffing. And in the meantime I hooked up another squirrel holding an acorn. My plan is to buy about 4 bags of stuffing when I head down to pick up my son today. Luckily our meeting spot is right near Craft Essentials so I can zoom in before he gets out of school.
We have our Rug Hooking meeting tonight at Pepa's at 7pm. Always fun to see what everyone is working on!
A new hooked bird that got finished up last night during the Academy Awards.
And just for fun I thought I'd show you how I make the fabric painted owls. First I just do a rough sketch of owl shapes with a Sharpie on some cotton fabric. Then I sew around the outline. I trim off the excess and cut a 2" line down the middle back to turn it inside out. Then I stuff it with polyfil, sew up the opening and paint several coats of paint on the cotton. Decorate it with more paint and add legs...I will show more photos as I go along.
