I love this woman’s blog and the stuff her local artists’ group does sounds and looks amazing. I’m such a sucker for boxes… They’re like these perfect 3D canvases ready for whatever someone wants to throw at ’em!
Here are some I’ve made over the years.
Winter Owls’ owls in the pram (above) are so incredibly cute I had the urge to run to the closest thrift store for fabric and start my own collection. Easter was coming up and I happened to have two old towels that were about to be donated to our dogs and a big ribbon and button collection.
Here’s what I came up with…
They’re nowhere near as cute as the owls, but my niece and nephew (4 and 1) loved them. I glued the eyes on the one on the right hand side (in addition to sewing them) to make it less likely the 1 year old would pull them off and swallow them. They started out as chicks (in my mind) for Easter but then the feet were more like duck feet and I only had enough room for one foot on each. I guess they ended up being more like Easter Aliens. Oh well. They make me laugh.
