Its sad when a colleague leaves – worse even when two colleagues leave, so, in addition to contributing towards the card and joint gift, I wanted to give both ladies a hand crafted gift too so I made a phone cover and a felt owl key chain.
Rita was given a crochet phone protector and Jane was given an owl, a felted stuffed owl. Those who know me, appreciate that I really dislike hand sewing but I had found a pattern on a really fab blog so I just went right ahead and made this, despite the hand sewing!
Not bad for a first attempt heh?
If you want to make a felt owl for yourself, you will find the pattern on this blog
Its great to try out something different, something outside of your own comfort zone – I really like this owl and I will be making more of these cute creatures!
