I have been making my owls from coffee sacks for some time now but, after a run of popularity, I had one sitting in my shop for quite a while so didn’t make any more.
Then, the other day, everybody started putting him in their ‘favourites’, then somebody bought him but people carried on favouriting him (is that a verb? I can’t think so?). I hadn’t been on the Front Page and couldn’t find him on the Etsy blog so it is a mystery. Anyway, I made another one straight away because somebody asked me to so he has already gone and now I have another to add.
I have to admit, I don’t really like sewing coffee sacks on my lovely new sewing machine because of all of the ‘dust’ that comes off the fibres and the needles blunt quickly, so I think I’m going to get my old one out and use that just for the owls.
