Meet my Army of Evil Minions.
I had seen Moonstitch's adorable "tutowlrial" a few years ago, and have had it sitting in my bookmark folder ever since. Til I got a request for beanbags in a swap, and knew this was PERFECT for them! :D I filled the top half with fiberfil, and the bottom half with rice...worked perfectly, with a great heft for tossing. All was going well, til I needed to do the eyes..the best material I had was this dark brown sweater I had felted ages ago, and I thought it would be just the thing.
So, made a couple up, sat back a little, and realized I was staring back at an army of evil little owls. Whoops. I hope she is feeling the need for some minions around the house! :D
PS: Her favorite color is orange, and also tiedye, of which I had neither. But I had a yellow based red fabric, so I made reverse tiedye with it, using bleach (you can't see it in the pic, but it looks really cool, and way more orange)...look for the coming tut!!
PPS: I didn't have the printer going, so I just drew my own pattern looking at her pics...result, my owls came out a little more high-and-mighty, versus chubby and cute. Prob contributed in no small part to the evil results.
