craftiness

/ mcdreamy the owl doorstop by zippitydoodah /
around the time of the last alt.shift.craft event in may, i discovered felt.co.nz, the approximate equivalent of etsy in nz. i of course lusted over so many great things and stumbled up this cute owl and decided to make my own!

ok, mine looks considerably skinnier than mcdreamy, but he turned out adorable. i salvaged an old wool vest for his body, picked out scraps from my fabric bag for his features and stuffed him with all the fabric scraps i could find a rock from work.


and of course i had to add a little tail. 

as when searching etsy, i found a million and one things that i loved on felt. luckily i am exercising restraint as my goal over the next year is to clean out all of the stuff we have accumulated in the apartment, not gain more!
