Before my sweet niece was born, her Momma sent me a picture of a cute little girly owl and asked if I could make one IF this baby was a girl. Well, Hallelujah... after three boys, my sweet sister in law got her baby girl. So Christmas called for an owl.
The photo she sent me didn't link to anything. Since I can't credit it properly I won't share it here. But it was pretty similar. I drew up my own pattern based on the picture she sent.
The cute face and head are made from wool felt. I splurged on the good stuff for this softie since I want it to wear well and last.
The body and dress are made from scraps of quilting cotton that I had in my stash. The cool orange, blue and green floral was from JoAnns and I should have bought a bolt of it when I could. It's discontinued now.
The body, head and legs are stuffed with fiber filll so it's nice and soft and cuddly. I used a fleece interfacing in the "wings" so that it would have some body but still remain floppy.
This is the best, isn't it? She is just the sweetest thing. I didn't share this photo first because I knew then you wouldn't be looking at my owl.
Sweet baby girl, I hope you know how much Aunt Lindsay loves you!
Merry First Christmas!
