Owl Brooches

Here are this week`s owls. I thought they looked quite sweet perched in my apple tree.

They are made from recycled tweed with felt wings and blanket- stitched feathers. I love embroidering their beaks and little claws. Their shell button eyes are also recycled from some button-covered cushions; a lucky find in my favourite charity shop!

My little owls are probably still my favourite brooches to make- no two are alike and I`m never quite sure how they`re going to turn out. They seem to take on their own wee personalities as they are being made.
