Cedric the Owl

I had this snazzy bin in the bedroom for about 8 years and it has now given up and has a huge rip and no longer fit for purpose. I do have a selection of tablecloths in my stash and wanted to use one. This is what I came up with a new cover, practical and pretty, win, win!

Was easier to do than I thought apart from the top bit which was a bit of a pain fixing, covered up the glue joins with a nice piece of fancy lace. Hopefully this will last as long as the other one did. (I have put a plastic bag in half way down)

While the sewing machine was out I also made this pretty, lacy heart. Which has a type written 'I love you' and 'The key to my heart' Simple but very effective.

           Twit Twooo.....  How about this lovely needle felted owlet. (I call him Cedric)  Made by my daughter and is now for sale. Please message me if interested.   He looks just the part and is ready to fly off.
               Here he is making friends with the two bookend owls. Just can't have too many owls in your life whatever shape or size!

Off on a walk and into the rush hour traffic! We did see a tractor in a field, but it didn't seem to be rushing off anywhere! See you next time.

This weeks linky parties are;



  1. Ooo! PERFECT Name!! Love the OWL too!

  2. What a lovely idea to use the embroidered tablecloth like that. Looks great. And creativity obviously runs in the family. The owl is so cute.

  3. Hehe, love all the owls together! You've done a lovely job with the bin, so pretty :) x

  4. Your work is absolutely lovely! LOVE LOVE your owlie! :)

  5. Love the owl, I've never tried felting but I love the things I see people have made.
    You bin fix is fab - such a brilliant idea and it looks so pretty, almost too good to be putting rubbish in!

  6. Gorgeous owl! He's got the most perfect expression on his face! I love your bin revamp. It is so pretty!

  7. Oh I love the bin, so pretty. Have a thing for hearts especially vintage lace ones.

    Cedric is so cute and how could you let him be sold....

    Made me laugh your rush hour is a bit like ours on our walks, see more wildlife than cars.

  8. What a cutie that owl is. I love your re-covered bin, what a great way to keep using something that was broken.

  9. Fab upcycle and the creative gene obviously runs strong in your family!

  10. How fun! Love the idea and be careful for all that traffic! I am visiting from Let's Party Together today.
