Sewing Cuteness!!

Hello All,

Sneaking in another sewing project! A friend just had her baby at 32 weeks and they are still in the NICU and so I whipped up this little owl to keep him company. No mind you itis bigger than his modest 5lbs! It took me 2 nights but only cause Abby woke up just after I finished cutting the patterns on night 1 but I finished him up the next night.

I used a tutorial from Make It Love It and here is the link... Snuggly Owl and I paired it with My Happy Garden fabrics from Cloud 9 and a little minky dot and some Papertrey Ink Felt .

Now I changed it up a bit because it was for a smaller baby and didn't make it as thick and didn't stuff the feet.
