Early this week I finally went to the post office to send my Discworld craft swap parcel to Noctua who had been eagerly waiting already – deadlines and I don’t mix well, I fear.
Noctua had stated that she’d like something for her new flat and that she especially liked the Discworld witches and Going Postal. Also, as you might deduct from her blog and even nickname she is a big fan of owls.
I decided to make coasters for the witches theme. I love working with layers of felt, and it also doubles as “something for a new home”.
As Going Postal is one of my favourite Discworld novels, too, I simply had to make something related to it. The lower two envelopes on the T-shirt feature the Ankh-Morpork Post Office’s motto:
NEITHER RAIN NOR SNOW NOR GLOOM OF NIGHT CAN STAY THESE MESSENGERS ABOUT THEIR DUTY.
Also, I printed a small postage stamp onto the back neck part of the shirt, sporting an owl because making something for Noctua without any owls would be downright wrong.
