Myrtle the owl

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I loved how this project turned out and it made a wonderful Christmas gift for my mother last year. I really liked the addition of the doilies to Myrtle's eyes. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you use small stitches if sewing up a similar project on the sewing machine. Also, use polyester thread, rather than cotton to avoid breakage when stuffing the owl.

What you will need

  • Recycled wool fabric Vintage doilies Buttons

Thanks! I love to collect old and vintage fabrics and notions and this project was perfect to use some of them.
