"Owls in the Hoop made by the Mad Lady and some dressmaking."

Hello,

I joined in Friday Night with Friends kindly hosted by Cheryll. I sewed during the day making up a couple of owls that were done in the hoop on the embroidery machine.


 I will be keeping the red spotted owl and the others will be gifts. The mad lady refers to where I got the embroidery design.These are available from the site
The Mad Woman of Locke Street.

There were 45 ladies keeping themselves busy with some crafty goodness, make sure you have a look at the link up on Cheryll's blog.


During the week I decided to make two pairs of pants with fabric from my stash. I used this pattern many many years ago. The only thing I changed with these is it had two rows of elastic around the waistline. Decided that one row would be sufficient.

Happy days.
Bev C

The owls are lovely Bev. Always great to do some sewing for yourself.

Dasha said...

I have a bunch of patterns about that vintage. LOL. However, I would need to do more than just make them with one row less of elastic - I would need to do a whole resize!
Lovely owls. You have done well with them.
