Fuzzy Owl

May 24, 2008 Sarah Coggins

The prompt for May 24/25 of dw2008 is to create animal cards using fuzzy fabrics. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had the perfect fabric. I sketched the shape I wanted on the back, cut and began to embellish. My original plan was a cat’s head. But after sewing on the nose (now beak) and starting to attached the eyes, I realized it looked more like an owl! Oops.


I hand stitched lines to create “wings” and used Prima flowers for feet.


Supplies: Paper Reflections card; fuzzy fabric, white felt, and threads from stash; Making Memories heart button & stitches; Autumn Leaves buttons; Prima flowers; Heidi Swapp journaling spot; American Crafts rub-ons; Micron pen; QuicKutz Tangerine classic font.

    Fun card, all those textures make it all so touchable. Like your page spreads as well, you manage to get lots of great photos into such a small space.
