Sewing is a Hoot

assorted color sewing machine

I decided to change Sewing Sunday to Sewing Saturday this week because of Super Bowl! We are a pretty big football family and I want to be able to concentrate on all the snacks tomorrow – I mean the game . . .

Last week I practiced various types of hand sewing stitches. I wanted to practice those stiches again, but I wanted to actually make something this time. I spoke with a colleague of mine, Lynn, and she directed me to a cute felt ornament from this blog.

I had left over felt, thread, and buttons from my previous two weeks so I gave it try. I was so into the creation that I forgot to take pictures along the way. . . so I had to make another one. The purple owl I made was my first attempt and the green owl was my second attempt.

How does my owl compare the picture from Aurora’s blog?

What do you think of my owls? What should I try to sew next?

    1. That was on my list as well, but it looks intimidating. Maybe I will try it as my big finale! Thank you for the encouragement!

  1. Hi Tina,
    I completely stand by your decision to move sewing Sundays to sewing Saturday due to the Super Bowl and snacks. I hope you enjoyed yourself! I love the owl, its so cute! Your stitches look like you put a lot of time into them, they are like perfectly spaced out! Great job! I think you should try to sew some scrunchies!!

    1. Alex, that is a great idea especially since my dog has wrecked most of mine. I looked up a how to video and I think I can do it!

  2. This is amazing! You are doing such a great job – your owl is adorable! I agree with Alexandra, you should try some scrunchies!!

  3. Hi Tina!
    It’s so cute! I remember in my home ec class we made “UGLY dolls” which were essentially the same idea as the owl you made! I am excited to see what else you make over the next few weeks!
