Canberra Brown Owls - May 2018

Hey Brown Owls!

So Craft Alive came to Canberra this month and it was just fabulous!  And what I love about Craft Alive is their featured artists and this month we were awed by the wonderful Amy Kallissa and Mandy from Sew Quirky.

So let's be inspired by Amy Kallissa's gorgeous work this month (and we will be inspired by Sew Quirky later this year).  Click on their links for even more info!

Anyways, Amy Kallissa had on display gorgeous felt embroidered embellishments, from her faces to beautifully stitched flower motifs:

  All you need is a small sheet of wool felt (1mm), your favourite colours of embroidery cottons, needle, embroidery hoop and your imagination.
 
Looking for something a little bit easier (with instructions and pattern?) these flowers are just gorgeous.

(Note: See https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/571069328/felt-poppies-tutorial-and-poppy for the paid pattern for these poppies)

Or for something completely different to the flowers but just as colourful and gorgeous, try an embroidered mandela.  Click on the link below for the pattern and tutorial.
