The reason for all this festive coloured wool is that I've started making some Christmas decorations. As you may remember, I've got a bit of a thing for felted owls - can you remember the family of owls that I made last November for my niece's birthday present? I thought that this year I would make some snowy owls in festive colours that would look pretty hanging on a Christmas tree.
First I felt the round bodies,
Then comes the fiddly part of felting the wool to make the eyes, beak and ears.
Finally, I add a string for hanging, and attach the little owl to a perch made from the pear tree in my garden - and here he is!
He's got some friends, too:
These two have already landed in my Folksy shop if you fancy taking a closer peek.
They are very addictive to make - that's what I'm off to do now!
