Night Owl

So I have tons of fabric left over from projects that I had grand intentions to do… but never did, or fabric that was given to me… and have yet to think of something to do with it.  I have no idea why… but whenever I start a project, I go out and get even more fabric!  So today, I used some of it to make an adorable little owl pillow for my Godson.  His room is all forest themed and I have had great intentions of making him a few things since before he was born (like 5 months ago).  Today was the day.

I used some of this fabric that I originally bought to make a quilt for Lan back when we were dating.  (That didn’t happen and probably never will… we have plenty of quilts and blankets as it is)

photoI have seen some fun owl pillow/stuffed animals on blogs that I follow, so I just winged it.  Owls are oh so appropriate for the little man since he is a night owl himself… keeping mom up to the wee hours of the morning.  I cut some rough shapes, adjusted, appliquéd (for the first time), sewed, stuffed… and tada!

photo (1)  Pretty cute if I do say so myself.  The fabric is all different textures which will be fun for a curious 6 month old (how old he will be when he visits) to explore.  It is all soft and squishy too :)

*sorry the pictures are all off color.  I was being lazy and didn’t want to open up Picasa to color correct.  Meh *


  1. It's so cute! I love it :)

  2. Ty loves it too! He was laying on the floor with it under his head watching TV :P
