Continiung on from my previous post, I have now completed the Owl order and he is wending his way northwards as we speak... I think quite a few makers will agree, that it is easy to end up working in similar colourways, as we are drawn to certain colour ranges. So for me, this opportunity, to work with someone elses choice was most enjoyable. We did have a bit of deliberation on which tone to use for the eyes, but I am very pleased with the results.
Moving on from that pattern, I decided to be extremely adventurous and attempt my own pattern! I'm loving the big, colourful circle which is the main body of the owl, which got me thinking if there were any other animals I could come up with, where I could utilise the same circle.
I have thought of a few, but my first attempt is going to be a fish! I have completed the first side, and so far it does have a fish form and am hoping that I can achieve a matching other side from following my scrawled notes!
I'm not really going to be able to tell whether or not this pattern is successful until I have sewn it together and stuffed it! I will let you know in the next post if a Fish has been born or major alterations will have to be done!
