The Owl and the Pussycat - Puppet set

Our school asked me to make a Story set ,

based on the beautiful Poem "The Owl and the Pussycat" by Edward Lear

 as a teacher's resource for Year 2

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar......

For very first time I've made a set with pastel natural colours it worked well with the Materials: Cotton , polycotton, calico cotton and just a bit of Felt
Its a 5 piece set

Set contains:
1 Owl –Hand puppet
1 Cat –Hand Puppet
1 Boat -pea green
1 Little Pot
1 Tiny bag

The set is listed in my ETSY shop as well https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/183797537/the-owl-and-the-pussycat-hand-puppet-set?I loved working on this product

Mrs HEN Easter Crafts -DIY table top decoration

Easter is coming
I have created this pattern inspired by the idea of making lovely Easter table decoration in natural colours and straw and lost of Eggs
listed in My ETSY shop :

For Mrs Hen i have selected Off white (Calico)Cotton and Scandinavian style checked cotton to create a Rustic / Nordic style

but any combination of 3 colours of your own choice would suits lovely to Mrs HEN so get creative make a Shabby chic style Hen with some faded flowery motifs or just use those lovely fabrics treasured for months, hidden somewhere in the craft drawers .

This is my White Hen but i would love to make it in more colourful version
Thank you !!!!!
