O is for...

Olivia the Owl!! Last weekend at a Christmas Market at Stundars a friend and I saw some very cute little stuffed owls. She was debating whether to buy one for her godchild and I suggested that we try to make one ourselves. So, last night, armed with an old pair of her jeans, a pile of my scraps, and some glühwein, we gave it a try and fell in love with the results. Stay tuned for Olivia's siblings - we both decided we need to have one of our own!

Olivia is so cute. And why buy expensive when you can make them yourself.

Olivia the Owl is super cute! I hope you share the 'recipe' when you have the chance. We'll have to come up with some more O names for her brothers and sisters ...

Olivia is too cute, but it was the glühwein, that gave me a chuckle. LOL

Patti said...

How cute! What a neat little project. And it looks just the right size for little hands to hold. At our house Shadow would think I'd made it especially for him!

I love your turtle, I am busy thinking of ideas already for my little stash of 'not as even as they could be' hexagons. Tree skirt and the owl are all great as well.

Hedgie, it looks like a very short detour to making penguins! So cute.

It's amazing what a little glühwein can do! Cute owl.

Cute Owl and great idea! How fun to make some together with a friend. My Nana used to make us all kinds of fun stuff.

Cheers!

Very cool. It looks like it was a hoot - sorry, I couldn't resist.

I love the eyes. Did you ever watch a children's programme called Captain Pugwash? Olivia's eyes are just like his LOL.

I love your owl and your turtles. I think you have a hudden talent for making little animals. Your doll quilt is gorgeous. I love the colors. Your mom picks out cool fabrics.

Samantha said...
