Handmade Thursday Little Felt Owl

On my quest to find some things to make on the theme on owls i came across a wonderful tutorial to make an adorable little felt and fabric owl Here

Now i will admit i am no expert when it comes to sewing but i found this little chap very simple and easy to sew together.

He's not quiet finished yet as ive no toy stuffing in my craft stash but thats just a good excuse to visit the craft shop ;0

I'm sure my daughter is going to be very happy with him once hes finished and i will add a ribbon loop to the top so she can hang him somewhere in her bedroom.

Im linking this up to Handmade Thursday over at her blog whitelilygreen

Simple Little Owl ThankYou Cards

Every January i like to make handmade Thankyou cards for my daughter katie to send out to various family and friends who have sent her gifts and money for christmas, i think its always polite for her to thank people this way as most live on the mainland uk so she doesn't get to see them to thank them personally.

Back in december i brought a cute little owl stamp and i guess this is why i chose a theme of owls for january :)

So i stamped some images on some plain white card then coloured them with various promarkers (a must have for any crafter!)

Then mounted them onto different shades of cardstock

Had a root around and used up some odds and ends of patterned backing papers and came up with these very simple but cute thankyou cards.

Having a theme is certainly giving me inspiration to craft and ive found some other makes id like to try but they have patterns that need printing out and unfortunatly just before christmas my printer blew up :~ so i might just have to go treat myself to a cheap printer to keep me going for now ;)

Cute Little Owl Handbag Charm

Well im keeping to my new years blog resolution to make sure i craft more and as promised this month im going to stick with the theme of owls.

I brought some of these cute little owl charms last month ...... available from ebay.

So decided to make myself a new bag charm, i thought pink and brown colours would be nice so had a root around in my box of beads for some pretty pearl effect glass beads in various shades.

Bag charms are very easy to make you just need a lobster clasp, chain, headpins various beads and a charm/charms of your choice.

Im very happy with the result but im thinking i need a new "brown" handbag to go with it ;0

Ive still some owl charms left over so when i get chance i think i'll make my daughter a little beaded bracelet with an owl on it as she adores owls.
