amis au fil des ans

just a few good friends, sharing adventures in family, arts, and sometimes heavy machinery

hooters

i guess you could say i have this thing for owls.  i am totally a sucker for anything that has an owl on it, so i decided i needed to try making one to go with the recent ‘welcome to the world’ gift i’m making for my soon-to-be nephew.

i made this little guy in about 3 hours, but really you could make it faster if you weren’t

watching glee and getting pestered by puppies.  also, it’s made without the use of a machine, yippee!  you’re supposed to stuff it with actual stuffing, but since i had some cloth diapers sitting around i cut half of one up into bits and made my own stuffing.

  2. really, we should name him nemo because he has a gimpy fin, but he told me last night that his name is winifred. he is old and wise.

    winifred. appropriate. 🙂

    i think i may use this for inspiration for a fish so i can use up some of that mendocino fabric. although i don’t know how much felt i will use. maybe i will try minky or chenille for the base. have a crinkle fin?
