It's been a busy few weeks while I've been working on two secret projects. I finished up my project for the Table Topper Swap on Flickr and my block for the Red, White & Blue Blog Hop that starts July 1st.
For the Table Topper Swap on Flickr, I don't want to reveal the table topper until I know she's received it, but would you like to see what I sent along as an extra? I remembered seeing a cute felt owl scissors case pattern on Etsy, and I thought I would just wing it (pun intended) and make my own.
Isn't she cute? I used one of the fancy stitches on my machine to add some interest to the owl's body and add a feathery looking stitch on the wings. She's a little chubby but I think she's adorable. This was my first time using wool felt instead of craft felt, and there is a big difference. The wool felt is so much more substantial and I'm looking forward to making more of these! I think you'll be seeing them in my Etsy shop soon!
My post for the Red, White & Blue Blog Hop will be up tomorrow, so be sure to visit again! Just to be a tease, here's a teeny portion of my block.
