I’ve suddenly found I have an obsession for owls. It’s a strange way to find out. I suddenly look around at the little guys I’ve got and what I love looking at and find that many of them are owls.
Damnit! I don’t need another obsession, I’ve got quite enough, thank you!
However, having said that, I just finished my practicum at a primary school that had, as it’s little mascot, an owl. I discovered this on the first day and took it as a Good Sign.
So I wanted to thank the two teachers that mentored me over the past month, so I made them both, you guessed it, little owls.
I wanted them both to be different, so I started with the one on the left, cutting out the individual feathers. It has wings too, you can see the wing on the right best, sticking out a little. Although I was happy with it, I felt I could do an owl a totally different way to see what happened. Thus the guy on the right. He looks a little like a tree is growing out the top of his head, but it’s part tree and part feathers and I like the fact he has both. Bird and Habitat in one.
The cool thing is that the second guy, the Tree Owl (ahaha, how great is that) sparked the next play! So I’ve been sewing like a whirlwind, and I’ll put a couple of guys up as I go, to show you all. I’m really proud of the guys I”m making, they’re ace!
