I FEEL OWLY.......

I'm a sucker when it comes to how-to and craft books. I have hundreds, most of which will not fit in this lawyers case. Right now my very favorite is.......This one!!!!!!! It's full of patterns and helpful techniques on fabric bird sculptures. I will now have something worthy to make with my stash of vintage wools and ticking's.
These three owls are my first attempts. While very time consuming, the projects are also fun. It's very satisfying to see their personalities emerge. These guys still need some fine tuning, but very good practice for me none the less.











OOPS, REDUNDANT!


Just a reminder! If you print out this page and take it to the Antiques & Collectibles Market at Grayslake this Feb. 12 & 13, you and everyone in you party will receive 1/2 off of the entry fee, courtesy of Zurko Promotion!
