Inspiring Creativity

So I’ve said I’m on a mission to document beautiful things, right? Well, since exams are hitting me with full force I am sharing with you someone else’s beautiful things :]

I have so so many creative things lined up for the summer! I’ve just been asked to be a Godmother (EEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee) so I really want to try to make a quilt for my brand-new baby God-daughter for her Christening!

Then I have lots of reading to do too, I’m going to start a reading journal and try and read every book on one of those ‘to read before you die’ lists.

I can’t wait to have all this time on my hands! Revision makes me feel a bit lost on the creative side of things :[ Last but certainly not least I have my 18th birthday coming up and I’m going to go mad on the whole kids-tea-party-infused-with-vodka thing, and also with the bunting, I’ll put some pictures of it up because I’m planning for it to be very very pretty :]

So, finally (!) todays inspiring creative… things?

Meet the Owlies!

                    Aren’t they adorable?!

These little guys are created by Sarah Goldschadt using old clothes and materials that would otherwise be given away / thrown away.

I think that they are an amazing way to reuse fabrics, and they look so easy to make on the tutorial she has put up on her blog. I’m practically itching to throw away my clothes so that I can use them to make little owls!

I’m planning to make them look really funky using some cool constrasting colours or fabrics :] They can be made any size so make good toys, cushions and even, as Sarah has shown, into a baby mobile!

Can’t wait to get started on them!

Have a good weekend! And to everyone in the UK, enjoy the Jubilee!
