I bought a pack of lavender a while ago and have not used much of it so I decided to make some felt animals and stuff them with some lavender and give them as gifts. I love working with felt and I have a good selection of colours in 100% wool felt which is super soft, strong and fab to work with. I got it from Blooming felt which is a fantastic online felt shop – visit their website here
I decided to make an owl first and followed a pattern I found on the internet (click here for the website)
I then made a cat which I made using a picture of a felt cat someone had made that I found on Pinterest – click here to see it on pinterest
I then thought about making a felt dog, however I couldn’t find a design I liked so I decided to make another owl using a different design that had I seen a few times, where the body of the owl was made up of lots of different coloured pieces of felt.
They were all filled with toy stuffing and a pouch of lavender, with a piece of string attached to the top of the animal so it could be hung up.
