Animal Wisdom Stuffies

by thecraftaholic

Here’s an owl that I made back in March. He’s cute, eh?

This weekend, I’m going to be giving a workshop at Spacecraft Brooklyn. We’re going to be learning about native animal totems (or medicine). In native cultures, animals are said to be guardians. Each of us have a guardian animal spirit that guides and protects us.

In this workshop, we’ll be learning more about that, and then making a stuffie based on an animal we feel is ours.

For me, it of course the Owl.

If you want to learn more about this, and learn some embroidery and hand sewing basics, come out and play with us.
