So the lovely Erica at Little Mummy came up with Guest Post Day. Basically everyone interested in doing a guest post had to show an interest and then Erica did a live draw. The best bit … each blogger swaps with another.
Now, what is good about guest post day is that I’ve found a new blog to add to my blogroll and you, my readers, get something a bit different. In fact Sharon has made something. I never make anything other than a mess and I have terrible sewing skills. This one is good though because you can use glue. Even I can use glue!
When you’ve finished here you could go over to Sharon’s to see my guest post .
So, over to Sharon …
How to make a felt owl brooch
What you need:
Wadding or cotton wool
Now depending on your crafty abilities you can either sew or stick your little feathered friend together.
I prefer to sew, but for quickness (especially if you’re making this with children), I’ve illustrated the glue version.
First download an owl template and cut it out. There are tons online and it just depends on what kind of style you would like.
Fold over a piece of felt and pin your template onto it.
Cut it out. You should now have two pieces.
Then cut a triangle for the beak, an oval shape for the breast, and two circles for the eyes.
The more colourful and contrasting the colours the better it looks.
Stick a button on the felt circles for the eyes.
Attach the eyes onto one side of your owl template.
Then glue on the oval piece, and the beak on top of that.
Sew up the two sides of the template but leave a gap for the stuffing.
Stuff your owl with either wadding or cotton wool.
