Tea T’owl

Oooh, I loved doing this one! Owls seem to be everywhere in homeware these days, so I thought I’d make myself one. Inspired by a cartoon I found on the tinternet, I got out the coloured pencils and paper and made a very rough pattern. I didn’t want to commit to the whole cushion thing, so I settled for a tea towel and used a nice smart one (100% linen, made in Britain).

I absolutely love this little owl, and improvising the embroidery to make her pretty was so much fun. In total we’ve got seven types of embroidery stitches, yay! Satin, outline, chain, Cretan, back-stitch, feather and line stitch.

This is a good example of why if you haven’t already, you really should try to make up your own embroidery project.
So. Much. Fun.
