Owls and Flying Elephants

Colour is definitely taking over in this household. Here's what I created to decorate great nephew Charlie's room.

Hooty owls up in the sky,

Watching elephants flying by.....

This was originally going to be a mobile, but I wanted something which would hang anywhere and be easy to move about. Amazing what you can do with a just a pile of felt scraps, some ribbons and an old wire coat hanger! I made up some templates (using the same elephant I drew for Charlie's birth sampler).

Each face is embroidered slightly differently -  Mr Green Owl looks a bit pompous!

This one looks a bit spaced out......

The elephants are rather jolly!

I'm pleased with how this came out, and it was a very cheery thing to make. I hope Charlie will enjoy the bright colours.

Have you made any treasures from re-purposed or recycled things lately?
