Another project for my Christmas fair stand are these cute owls - made after a traditional Japanese pattern. The word in Japanese for owl is fukuro, and it contains the word fuku, luck. So the owl is a symbol for luck.
These owls are made of fabric, the big ones partially of recycled jeans fabric and new cotton prints. Some of the eyes are made of vintage buttons fro my grandmother stash.
They're very cute and not too complicated to make - and you can even use the as pincushions!
