Hoot hoot!

October 27, 2011

I made this little owl for a friend of my Mum's whose son has just had his first baby.  I wanted to make an owl so did a bit of an internet search of owl pics and put this pattern together.  He is made from blue wool with wool felt wings and cotton eyes and legs.  He is simple but nice and cuddly and safe for a baby with no buttons or hard bits!

Our strawberry patch is the healthiest looking thing in our garden at the moment - inspected every day for ripe ones.  We have to get to them before the birds do.  I'm going to use them as inspiration for a painted picture on the end of Isabella's doll cradle that I am doing up.

And this is the beginning of my new baby's quilt. I am eager and am sure to have it finished well in advance before baby comes.  It is only going to be cradle size as we don't know the sex yet and I want to make a cot size one once I know what colour scheme I am going to go with.

Other projects on the go ....
  • A vintage look smock top and bloomers (x2)
  • Finishing Isabella's dolly cradle
  • This little deers dress for a lovely customer
  • Baby quilt
  • Plus  many more buzzing in my mind to begin!
I'm sharing today over at Kootoyoo.
