Necktie Owl - Giveaway

Monday, October 11, 2010

Dear blog readers, I know some of you noticed in my last post.. yes there was something else going on in my hat refashion photograph - two little owl broches made from the same necktie fabric as the hat band.


My recent interest in necktie fabric began when I saw these little beauties on a blog I follow - moobeardesigns. They are made from recycled mens neckties, buttons, thread and pins to back for a brooch, and are the coolest little critters:

The clever Ally over at Harrys Desk came up with this idea, when she awarded her handmade necktie OWLs (Outstanding Work Ladies) to her Sunday shoot helpers:


Necktie owls are versatile little creatures, as well as brooches, they can also be pinned to bags, sewn onto baby blankets, gift cards, etc. The first necktie owl set I made I have stitched onto a plain black bag from my wardrobe, with some thrifted vintage fabric as the background:


Giveaway!

Recycled Fashion is drawing close to 100 subscribed readers on blogger, and has reached over 200 'likers' on facebook, so to mark this occasion, I would like to giveaway three sets of mummy and baby owlet brooches I have made. Who would like a pair of mummy and baby owlets? It doesn't matter where you are in the world, if you would a set of owls, please leave a comment below, or on Recycled Fashion's facebook page. I will draw the winners two weeks from now.

I have a condition! I would like a photograph emailed back to me showing the owls in their new homes, whether you decide to use as brooches, to decorate on a bag, or somewhere else, it would be great to see where the owls have landed!

Pop over to Ally's blog and enter her competition if you would like to learn how to make your very own cute little necktie owls.

Those are so cute! I like the one with the leaf eye, he looks a little crazy. You have such talents!

Spooky...I have that exact orange floral vintage fabric...it was cafe curtains that I picked up at a jumble sale. The owls are very cute too. I like the one with the mummy with the flower in its hair. Hmm - I might put them on my handmade nappy bag once my own little owl comes along.

Erica Louise said...

Elyse - yes that fabric! I picked it up from my local oppy, also used to be curtains. Its great isnt it

My 7 year old son loves the owls and really wants to make a family of them so he would love a parent / child set to start this off.

I love owls and these are so cute. I remember seeing them on moobeardesigns when she made them, then I saw it on your shirt and was like HEY! that's those owls.

I would love to win and would happily photograph them in their new homes.
