Monthly Make 2012 :: February

One of my goals for this year is to join in with the Monthly Make 2012 challenge, as organised by the lovely Felt Fairy. I didn't manage to complete the challenge last year for one reason or another, so I am determined to make something new and specific (and more importantly something for myself, rather than a gift for a friend or an item I can put in the shop) for evey month of 2012.

In January I made myself a pin book, which I embellished with little flower shaped buttons. So for February I decided to make myself an Owl shaped Scissors Case:
I recently came across a pdf pattern of a similar design and it reminded me of a leather scissors case which my Grandmother had when I was a little girl - I loved the way the handles of the scissors looked like a pair of glasses, making it look a very wise Owl indeed.

So I decided to have a go at making my own version, based on my own Little Owl design:

Cute isn't it? It now has pride of place in my sewing box.

Are you joining in with the Monthly Make 2012 challenge?

Have fun. xx
