Hoot Hoot!

I've been sewing a ton lately and I've been wanting to do some applique owls for months now. Well I finally got around to it on Monday. First I had to come up with a pattern (so I could replicate it IF it turned out cute), then once the pattern was made I started putting it together with fabric. Here is the finished product. Isn't this the cutest thing ever! I love it and I will admit that I did my own little happy happy joy joy dance when it was done. It is the perfect size for little girls like Berlin who are into toting everything around with them (all over the house, outside, in the car and to the store ... kinda annoying) and I love that it's not tacky pink with lame disney characters all over it. This also matches the little dress I made for Peter's funeral (it's out of the same grey corduroy fabric) so it will make a cute set.

Any hoo ... Finley has become my greatest fan. During the day if I sew while Berlin naps, he'll climb up on the chair behind me, put his arms around my neck and snuggle up and just watch me sew (I LOVE THIS!). And anytime I complete something his face lights up and he exclaims 'WOW" each time. I just love my biggest fan. Now, if I can just get a couple more made before the boutique in December.

Sew, sew cute! I wish I had your talent. If you need any more of that purple fabric, I think I have 2 or 3 sheet sets left that I will probably never use. Just let me know, and I can mail it up your way!!
