Day 19: an owl egg cosy

Day 18: owl cosy
This project was like a last 
minute essay.
You finish it on time but
you really don't want 
to hand it in.

I like some parts of it, namely
(I did change the wings)
and I was happy with the fabrics 
that I chose.
But I don't like the look
of leaving the edges raw and
I'm not happy with my
embroidery.
 Day 18: owl cosy back

The back actually was going
to be the front and I had cut
out wings with Elvis on it.
I thought it would look so cool
but it just didn't work 
although I liked the look 
of the guitar.

OMG that is totally adorable! It turned out very cute, but I think I agree, not quite liking the edges left raw, I'd be afraid of raveling over time. Still, very sweet little egg cozy!

Thanks guys, I really appreciate your comments!
I've seen this technique done brilliantly by other people.
I'm starting to see past some of my mistakes and seeing the sweetness in him too.
I would love to make him over again and take my time with these new techniques.

Nice work! Owls are always so inspirating (is that the right word?) I have to go and draw something now...:)

Thanks Mette, yes they are so inspiring (you were very close :0)
When my knitting skills improve I really want to tackle some owl gloves.
