Ollie Beak

Sorry Pam Mc, but it's more crafts for my stall I'm afraidI haven't had any time lately for chazzin' and today I've been busy with a needle.  Sewing is not my forte but last week I was inspired by the fabularse owl made by Kylie which lovely Curtise featured here.  I remembered that somewhere stashed away I had a pattern saved from a magazine which looked relatively easy, even for a novice like me. So armed with some leftover curtain fabric and oddments of felt from my stash I ran this up on my Frister & Rossman. 




Coincidentally he fits today's brief at November photo-a-day - Man-made

I'm linking Ollie to Lakota's Ta Dah Tuesday.

Never fear readers I will be back with more chazza tat finds once the craft fair is over, in the meantime, thanks for sticking with me.

Ollie Beak is fabulous! I'd better not let Littlest catch sight of him, or you'll have to make her one! Hope the production line for the craft fair is coming on nicely!
PS. The lollipop lady didn't exactly say I looked like a hooker, but we kind of cobbled the description together between us - don't worry, I wasn't insulted, it was funny! xxx

Hi Fiona, I just found your blog. Thanks for mentioning my funny little owl. Yours is much more profesh than mine.
You are very funny btw, and it totally sucks that you got the blame for Mandy Dickson's 'naughtiness' over that David essex poster x

p.s. I'm not crafty, but I think I'm going to have to follow you!
