Owls everywhere!

Here we are again - another Monday! As always, do visit Handmade Monday to see lots more lovely craft blogs. 


I'm not a having a very productive one here since the kids have a teacher training day, so one has gone out to work on homework with a friend, leaving the other one here all alone with no-one to play with! So I'd better get on with it...



As mentioned last time, I've been introduced to Pinterest (notice my new button up at the top left?? *hint hint*) and I pinned one of my knitted creations on there. It seemed to get quite a lot of 'repins' so I thought I'd share it with you all too! 
My Little Knitted Sock Owl
It's a prototype really - I think it needs a bit more 'cuteness' somehow. Maybe some more embroidery on it? Does anyone have any suggestions?
The owl was made from hand-dyed sock yarn, and is filled with plastic pellets and lavender so it smells gorgeous!


This then got me thinking about all the lovely handmade owls that there are around, so here are some of my favourites:



These are so sweet! I want them all dangling off my bag.


Here's another thing on my 'Projects to Make' list!



This is just too gorgeous and huggable! It's made from alpaca yarn, so I can only just imagine how soft it must be.


Lastly, a lovely big thank you to Jam Dalory for this lovely award - it's very kind, and it's always nice to have a pretty picture to add and brighten up my page! I am struggling to find 5 blogs to award, because all the ones I follow have too many followers to qualify - but I will work on it and pass on the award soon!




See you soon!

  3. I love your owl, and I don't think he needs much embellishment - maybe some white felt or stitching around his eyes?

  8. I love these owls, so many different variations! You could maybe add some tufty bits to the ears? Or a pair of glasses to make him look wiser! He is really cute as he is though. x
