Birds in Progress

Update: you'll find a tutorial for sewing a felt barn owl mask (and lots more fun felt masks) over on my Patreon page.

This week I've been making lots of birds.

I've been sewing lots of brown owl masks and barn owl masks (which are both proving popular at the moment with Halloween just around the corner) Here's a pile of them, half-finished:

I've also been cutting out lots of pieces ready for making some British bird ornaments.

I love that pair of photos together - lots of sewing happens in between those two steps!

Gosh Laura your owl masks are stunning - I absolutely adore them :-)

Between you and I, I've got a very good idea on how much cutting and sewing goes into making those ornaments and masks.
My fingers ache just looking at all those felt scraps!

Tumus - Yup lots of time goes into this stuff, doesn't it?
