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