Owls

Hi gang!  Well, I can't wait to see everyone's take on this week's theme.  Am I the only one who thought of macrame owls from the 70s?  I made this mini version for my tag out of crochet cotton.  I found the instructions online-- it's really supposed to be a necklace.  So I kept the "70s" idea going with the background (which I painted) and fonts. 

Just to prove it really is tag size...
Have a good week everyone.  And thanks for the encouraging comments on previous tags!

  1. How unusual Diane. I've never heard of macramé owls I'm afraid but this is lovely and your painted background - 'very groovy man' :0)

  2. Love your macramé owl, my mum has a large one as a hanging and I've often thought that it could be scaled down, you have proved it. :-)
