I feel so honored to be interviewed and featured in one of Malaysia’s leading English Daily, The Star, at the Craftypedia column. We had a long interview, head over to read more on what they had to say about me (click here), or get today’s copy from the newsstand. I am the cover story of The Star2 with a 2 full-page story and 2 half-page tutorial on this owl mobile!!!
I made this nursery owl mobile, “Forest of Owls”, to share with the readers and I am so happy that the columnist, Lee Mei Li, allowed me to share it here with you all. As many of you may have known that I just moved in to my new home and I still have plenty to work on for the home decor. These 2 sets of nursery owl mobiles (a pink and a blue) came in time for the kids’ rooms, one for my daughter and one for my son. I am glad that they love it dangling from their ceiling, watching them swing under a dim nightlight and to fall asleep.
The original plan was to design a similar owl from the owl key chain holder that my sister and I did few years ago. My friend told me, why not split the head and body and make them swing freely when the mobile moves. Good idea! So, I picked up my paper and pencil, sketched out a new owl and started working on it…. Later, I added more owls, a tree and some hearts to complete the whole nursery owl mobile.
Hope you love it and wish to see you start sewing it too, be it for your kids or as gifts for friend’s baby.
