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).
