The Owl and the Pussycat

I made this little puppet Owl and Pussycat when I was on a course at my local children's centre - the idea was to make objects to accompany a nursery rhyme. The pussycat is made out of the pocket of a jacket that was a bit too small for me. And the owl is made from a tatty old glove that had been left on a wall! The lining inside the boat is a bit of machine knitted wool I made when I tried out a machine knitting course. I wish I'd got on well with machine knitting as the fabric is so beautiful and flimsy, but working the knitting machine was a nightmare. I made a little five pound note and a jar full of honey, but they've since got lost in Ellis's toyland!
