Owl Softie



Inspired by my friend over at the Frabjous Versipel I set out to make a monster.  Specifically a monster for my nieces to whom I owe a Christmas present.   Yes.  I'm a bit behind.  Though with a little luck we might celebrate Christmas at Valentine's.  

Anyway my monster has morphed into an owl.  These creatures have a mind of their own.  I'm rather enamored and may not be able to give this one away.  If that's the case I'm likely to spend the weekend sewing softies.  I can think of worse ways to spend my time.  

The colors are a bit hard to see but it is a lovely chartreuse with an orange head, yellow feet and red heart.  I'll take a better picture once it's complete.  

The materials are fleece and felt.  All fabric I bought for other projects and never completed.  This project is therefore a stash buster.  Another good thing.  

I have a feeling softies are going to be part of my permanent gifting rotation.  Homemade gifts are best (even if they are two months late).  

xo.

I love it! This little owl is just adorable. They will be thrilled! So happy to turn the wheel of inspiration your way, my dear. Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth we'll go. :o)
