Owls Hoot

This is my newest craft imagining and what I've been doing since the end of last week. This owl picture came about today after I copied the birds off a bag in the new Frankie magazine. Last week I did a dress design and have started a baby themed design in a frame with five different compartments. They've all got painted white op shop frames - that will be their trademark. This owl one turned out a little too country with the plaid background but it's the only fabric that co-ordinated. They don't take long at all to make once you have to design, it's just a bit of cutting (with fantastic new $2.49 dressmaker scissors!!) and some messy glueing. All very easy to duplicate a few times over if I decide to do the market things. The picture didn't turn out well because it's night and the flash was a bit overpowering, getting caught in the laminating plastic (not glass, as it was an op shop find that didn't come with anything).
