My latest Hooty
As some of you would remember, I moved in December to a new home....I still have stuff to unpack, and the day before yesterday, I located some stretchy fabric and was in two minds whether it was staying or going, well some of it is definately staying now....in the form of Harriet the Hooty, seen in the above photo.....she's about 10-12" across and I designed her using both characteristics from several other owls I've seen about the place, and some I added myself. It's a bit hard to tell in the pic, but she has a stuffed beak to give it a bit of dimension. The reason the top half of her looks a bit fluffy is because it was a stretch towelling sort of fabric....worked in well with the other fabrics though......When I make more of these, I think I'll make them in 100% cotton....far easier to work with than stretch fabric!
What do you think of her? C'mon you know you love her, even if she's pink!
