unusual i know, but this week, my creative space got a bit portable and oddly saucepan-able. see, i help run a sewing group on sunday afternoons. its for women on a local housing estate who otherwise wouldn't have access to sewing machines or overlockers. but on sunday this week, it was very quiet, and so i began to riffle around in the scraps bags to see what i could find.
see i had been planning to make an owl for terrible comfort's halloween show (see the call out here, and join on in!). and having printed out this pattern at work during the week and then having conveniently left it in my bag, i thought i would get started. so, finding the cut off leg of a pair of tan corduroy pants that had been hemmed by someone and a scrap of beigey coloured fake fur i was off. that was, until some more women showed up and i went back to helping run the group. and that's where the saucepan comes in. see at the end of the group, i had to pack everything up to take the rest of the owl pieces home. for a random assortment of reasons, i had one of my big saucepans with me - the perfect place for all the owl pieces.
and so this week, i have been finishing the owl off and here it is, all finished: the terrible comfort portable/saucepan-able/fabric scrap owl...
the front panel is a little bit crooked, but not too bad for a first attempt at the pattern, with no instructions. i might even make a few more!
what's going on in your creative space? saucepans?
