My current obsession

At the moment I am completely obsessed with birds, particularly owls. I am making lots of small birds out of felt, trying out different shapes and patterns. The ones that work well I am going to make in different colours, maybe with decoration on them like some embroidery or some sequin or bead detailing, and sew ribbon to them so they can be used as ornaments / decoration. Some of the smaller ones I plan to make into brooches. I am also going to work out some way to make a hanger for them, so I can make them into mobiles & sell them in sets - I made a mobile for our next-door neighbour's daughter years ago out of a rainbow of coloured felt ducks & it was quite a success.
