Sleepy Owl Pyjama Case
Scottish Quilt Show that Lynz and I went to in September. I didn't know what I would do with them when I bought them, I just loved them, especially that circle one on his tummy. I think they have worked really well for this project, making Sleepy Owl so soft and cuddly.
It was a doddle to make. I machined the eyes and tummy onto the front shape, and then blanket stitched afterward and hand sewed the beak. The wings are made from my first attempt at 'felting' an old jumper in the washing machine. It was one I had knitted myself years ago and it has come out really lovely and thick, so all I needed to do was cut the wing shape out (of what was the sleeve!) and insert into the seam. The colour matches perfectly too.
I know it looks like I am violating the poor owl, but he doesn't mind, honest!
