Trend Alert: Mama’s Got a Brand New Bird

By Molly Freudenberg, October 1, 2012

Trends in crafting make me giggle sometimes…in the past year or so we have gone crazy over birds on everything, cupcakes, chevrons, feathers…I’m sure you can think of a few others!
What’s trending right now? The very very latest crafty craze is {drumroll….} OWLS! These owls are not like the flat bird shadows we loved in 2010-11, but are more of a cute, pieced bird with focus on their eyes and contrast of their feather colors….lots of happy color!

So give a ‘woot woot’ to those feathery creatures with the watching eyes and 360 degree rotating heads.  Owls are totally in at the moment and people are designing fabrics, home decor, and even clothing with an owl theme. Now, here are some pics for inspiration!
