Sometimes it takes me a while to fully form an idea for a new project. And sometimes the ideas spring fully-formed into my head. It was like that with this trio of owl friends. I even knew what their names were going to be right away – Cecil, Orville and Fletcher. These patterns are quick and so much fun to make! I used more of that wonderful 100% wool felt from Janet at Felt on the Fly on Etsy in rich jewel tones. These would look great on your Christmas tree, but to be honest, I’m going to hang mine around my house all year long. They would make wonderful gifts for friends, too! Fly on over to Lolli Dolls, my Etsy shop, for these patterns. And when you purchase all three patterns at once you get a discount!
I am finally premiering some new patterns in my Etsy shop – yay! I have loved vintage seed packets and seed annuals for a long time, and I was so excited to recreate two 1800s seed annuals as felt ornaments. 100% wool felt is so much fun to work with – the feel of it, how it behaves…there’s just nothing like it! You can make these seed annuals as ornaments or as framed art. Because they are three-dimensional, they look wonderful in a shadow box frame.
