Recently, when my mum was doing a fabric order, I was inspired to also make a fabric order (it was rather difficult as there were soooo many fabrics to choose from!!) and after browsing the patterns I chose a couple of those too. The first one I chose was this pattern pack containing an owl, deer, rabbit, raccoon and fox.
The first thing I made was this cute bunny (below), but I was so eager to make it, I didn't take any photos! I'm really pleased with how it turned out, and considering it is the first proper thing I have sewn in a long long time, it's really not bad. Practice makes perfect, and there are things that I learned from this make, that I was able to improve on when making the owl.
When I moved onto the owl, I made sure to take a few progress photos.
First off, here is the pattern all cut out - it's basically baking parchment 😂!
After cutting out the pattern, and choosing which material I was going to use, I pinned the pattern on.
As you may see, I had to create an extra wing piece as I needed to cut out 4 pieces (the material was doubled) and it meant I could do all the pinning and cutting at the same time. For the eyes and beak I used some sticky backed fabric.
Once I had cut out the pieces, I then again got too keen with the sewing and forgot to take any photos until I had finished!! Next time, I'll make sure to take photos at each and every step!
Here is the finished owl.
