The Owl and the Pussy-Cat
BY EDWARD LEAR
Owl & Pussy-cat
Many of us remember this poem from this poem by Edward Lear (1812–1888) of an owl who serenades a cat. They fall madly in love & set sail on a great adventure in their pea-green boat for one year & one day. Its a fun little story filled with romance & adventure. This little owl & pussy-cat (pictured above) have been handmade using a mix of wool blend felt; most of which has been reinforced with interfacing; & 100% (quilters) cotton in coordinating colours. The boat has been decorated on one side with a hand embroidered floral vine & the details; facial features, arms & feet, flowers, bowtie & pussy’s tail; have been hand stitched on using matching embroidery thread. Owl’s guitar has also been reinforced & the strings are hand stitched with embroidery thread.
