Owl

I made this applique embroidered table mat/coffee table runner as a Birthday present for a friend, Shona. Its sort of similar to the climbing vine mats I made earlier. I really loved the colour combinations in those, so adapted this to make a whole tree design.

By the way… its meant to be a barn owl ;) the colour isn’t quite (at all) right… but they’ve got the same kind of heart shaped-face. Not too good with this biological accuracy, what with being a biologist!

The main colour is a cute chalky blue gingham with little flowers dotted about for a cottage look – I was trying to theme with some lovely bunting Shona had up around her apartment! The mat is stiffened inside and has a blue flower backing material, though I forgot to photo that! But never mind – its less interesting than the front :)
