As well as spending time solidly with his ipod and computer, wandering around games shops and arcades and reading his own height in books, Ayden has finished two owls to give to local foster care, for his Silver level Duke of Edinburgh Awards. The pattern came from this cute tutorial from Mels Own Place and was printed at 100% instead of the recommended 200%.
Ayden added felt eyes instead of buttons and the wings were made and turned instead of having the raw edge (I helped with this tricky bit and the topstitching). More nice work for a 15 year boy!
And some of the latest paper animals from here. My kids just love them.
