Soutache Owl Two-For-One!

Hello Everyone!

I finally tried my hand at soutache, and WOW – it is not easy! (I found myself drawing on very old embroidery knowledge in order to get my fingers to do what they were told! HA!)

For my project design, I decided to make a little owl that can be worn as a pin or as a necklace! I found some adorable images on Pinterest, and after I made my little friend I thought a cat, bunny or penguin would also be adorable to make. The possibilities are endless!

The pin back I chose has the option for you to convert it into a necklace, so I just thread some chain through when I feel like wearing an owl necklace and not an owl pin! FUN!

And here are some front and back photos of my little treasure! Isn’t he adorable?
