Okay, to tell you the truth, I just looked at the clock and realized
it is after midnight... I still consider it Christmas Eve-eve. But
really it's Christmas Eve!!!
I spent the day with my husband, traveling around and tonight, sewing for fun. I made a dog toy, to be discovered Christmas morning, by a handsome puppy.
( the other two pups are getting bones, they don't love soft toys so
much.) I also made a little owl, using wool felt and fabric scraps.
The owl came out pretty well for no pattern and no hand-sewing ability what so ever. I really need to work on that, as well as piecing parts together in the right order. I had a time of doing things inside out and flipping properly, then barely left a hole big enough to stuff it full.
I was thinking the folded over top bit would double as a beak, but I'm not sure if it doesn't look like a LOOOOONG nose. I'm gonna try shorter next time around.
In the end I learned a few things and came up with other ideas too, it was good! More practice is definitely needed. Trial and error, my favorite way to go.
