Begin by breaking off a piece of the white wool roving for your owl’s body. It should be about the length, width and thickness of your hand from palm to fingertips.

Roll the white wool roving between the palms of your hands as you would if you were rolling a piece of playdough into a snake.

Beginning at the short end, roll the wool ‘snake’ into a thick spiral.

Gently poke your needle into the wool on the outside of the spiral. This will felt it so that your spiral keeps its shape even when you let it go.

Round the top end of the spiral by poking your needle felting needle into the wool. This will be your owl’s head.

Felt the bottom end of your spiral flat with your needle. Continue until your owl’s body is able to stand on it’s own.

Now for your owl’s face. Break off two pieces of the brown wool string… about the length and thickness of your needle. Roll the string between the palms of your hands so that each piece becomes nice and compact.

To make the owl’s beak, pinch a small amount of the tan wool and roll into a ball between the palms of your hands.

Using your needle, felt eyes and beak in place. Use your needle to pull a few strands of the eye wool loose so that you can shape them into the ‘tear’ shapes.

The Christmas Tree is Up!

I love this time of year. There are so many precious family traditions to share… each day brings new excitement.

Our Christmas Tree is looking magical. I let Kitty and Teddy choose their favorite felted ornaments and garlands from the shop and now we have the most enchanting woodland tree. It’s bright and colorful and has so much cute we can hardly help squealing in delight.

Felted Owl Mobiles

Look what I’ve been up to… I’ve been working on felted owl mobiles for The Magic Onions Shop? I love them! They are so cute. They bring their special brand of woodland magic to any kids room. Kitty has a yellow one in her room and it looks utterly adorable.

Each owl sits on a real twig perch with a pretty little colorful balloon to add fun and whimsy to this magical mobile.

And… in September, each order I receive in the shop will receive a special gift of a pack of 6 colorful felted acorns.
