Attention Crafters: Snails Are the New Owl

MAY 3, 2012 updated May 30, 2016

Snails2
We set out to unthrone the owl from its perch as the king of all crafty critters and today we're pleased, and slightly surprised, to be able to announce that the new owl is… snails. This week's winner is the lovely "Snails On Parade" by San Diego designer Cheyanne Sammons. On a pure critter-for-critter count, let it not go un-noted that there are two hedgehog fabrics in this week's top ten, which leaves open the door for a slight argument as to which creature is really the new owl. You be the judge. All of the top ten are terrific.
