Description

I work for the Heathlands Project, a social enterprise supporting adults with a learning disability. One of the groups I run (with co artisit and burda member art-owl) is a textile group. I designed this owl pincushion project for the members of the group to allow them to practise some basic skills; pinning, cutting, tacking, machine stitching and handstitch. I chose felt (because the edges don’t fray and I didn’t want to give them too much hemming to start of with) and a choice of fabrics for the belly, which they did have to hem. They’ve produced some fantastic owls, all really individual and full of character!

    These are too cute! Each one has it’s own unique character going on. I love it!
