It’s back-to-school time in the northern hemisphere and this DIY Owl Locker Magnet is a fun and easy way to personalise your locker.
I was chatting with Amie Plumley the other day and she mentioned she was going to use my speech bubble magnet as a locker magnet project with her sewing club. I loved the idea so this little Owl softie is jumping on the locker magnet wagon. You can find the Owl tutorial here and the template here.
This little owl locker magnet softie requires only one stitch…a running stitch which is my all time favourite stitch. It’s an easy stitch to start kids learning to sew because it’s simple to master and makes sewing a project much quicker than a blanket stitch. Here’s a running stitch tutorial to help kids master the stitch.
I met Amie by chance on Instagram…I’d heard of her famous Sewing Schoolbooks, and after coming across an interview with her, thought it would be really interesting to hear her thoughts on teaching sewing to kids…so I interviewed her and published that interview on this blog last week…this week Amie turns the tables and interviews me on her blog Sewing School.
