Owl Wall Art - Baby Name Sign

I finally got around to making something for my little one. Her older sister helped me choose the fabric for the little owls. It is from Heather Ross's Mendocino line - great taste, right? I also made Hazel her own little owl. Here's a photo of the crazy baby hanging out in her crib.

I had been wanting to make Hazel her own owl mobile for awhile because every time I make one she gets so excited looking at it. I had fun personalizing the tiny little owls just for her - plus this way she will get to keep it! She may never get a quilt, but she will have baby owls spelling her name. Ok, maybe ONE DAY she will get a quilt.

Etsy Treasury - Meteor Shower Inspired

It's mid August and that means it's time for the Perseid Meteor Shower. So, since it was way to hot in the sewing room last night I made an Etsy treasury with an Astronomy theme. I have always been interested in Astronomy and I had a lot of fun looking on Etsy for items to fit this collection. A few owls snuck in there, but they go with the theme!

Tonight I'll be outside in the back yard looking up - I am hoping for a clear night tonight!

Back to School Time

It's back to school time. For the first time in six years I am going to have to wake up to an alarm! My daughter is going to be going off to Kindergarden. She is very concerned about every detail concerning. . . her lunch. I told her I would make her a little coin purse for her milk money - oddly enough she choose a fabric with owls on it!

One thing Etsy introduced me to was imported Japanese fabric! So CUTE! I order a bunch of the little prints for snack bags, and I am going to use some of the smaller pieces for these little milk money purses... I will be listing some new ones in my shop soon.

Tiny Owls

I've been on a mobile making craze. Mostly cute owl mobiles. I thought I would make a few "loose owls" to sell in my Etsy shop. This guy, Dipper, is made out of fabric I bought with my aunt a long time ago - before I was fabric-crazy. I LOVE it. I was going to make a quilt with this fabric, but I think it makes pretty cute owls.

More tiny owls to come because they are sew fun to make!
