Right before Christmas, a certain little girl in the house requested an owl. “You know, an owl, that is a pillow, that I can hug?”
An owl, you say? Well, I was sure that could be arranged. Lo and behold, there was a super cute tutorial that totally fit the bill, and I had everything I needed to whip one up right at my fingertips.
But who could stop at just one? I remembered a doting grandmother talking about her little granddaughter’s love of owls, and thought she could use one, too. And then Craft Hope launched Project 19, which gave me the perfect excuse to make a couple more. These two began their journey to New Jersey yesterday.
[Project notes: The only changes I made were to double up the feet to give them a little more stability, and I topstitched the wings because I'm kind of a topstitching fanatic.]
There’s one more in production for my lovely niece, who requested her own when she saw me stuffing these two. “I need one to keep my dog [the one I made her a couple Christmases ago] company.” Now, how could I refuse that? The dog needs company!
In other news, the Christmas stuff is all down and put away til November. The house has never looked less cozy, unless you count the way it has looked every other January. Blah.
