These are only the first of many owl clips I have started crafting like crazy to get ready for the start of holiday gifting time. However, these are not the most exciting owl objects to be finished this week.
I wanted to get these posted before the evening gets away from me. Looking forward to sharing the owl pouch that will hold these clips for some of my favorite little girls.
Maybe I'm still hanging on to the tail end of the owl fad, but I just love little kids decorated with these cookie birds. More to come...
Like the Owl Purse I just finished!
1 stained but salvageable child's T-shirt
1 fat quarter or other quilting weight cotton square
1 square of canvas or other heavy material for lining *(unless you enjoy playing with interfacing the canvas will keep the purse shape without too much hassle)
1 colorful shoelace or length of twill tape to coordinate
The basics- scissors, needle, thread, felt scraps for decorating
Create a wing shape to fit around the edge of the body of the owl. Cut two opposite wings, press a small seam around the inside edge of the wings and top-stitch the length of the inside curve through both the T-shirt and canvas layer.
Once the wings are secured, decorate your owl with beak, eyes and even little feather tufts.
Pin all layers together, right-sides facing in. Pin strap to edge. Sew around edges. Turn right-side out and press.
