Hoot! Hoot!

So, ya know how owls are all the rage right now?  I've seen owls everywhere from walls to shirts to bedding to stuffed animals to jewelry.  EVERYWHERE!  When my SIL was here a few months ago and we were checking out some of my favorite blogs, we came across Toad's Treasures.  Emily (aka Toad) is married with two precious boys.  She has lots of cute tutorials and etsy site with precious patterns.  I loved them all, but especially this cute tutorial.   


Toad's owl.  How CUTE is that?

So, my SIL and I decided that I would have to make one for my neice, "M".  She loves owls!  Her birthday was on August 18th, so I am a little late with school starting and everything.  Wanna see how mine turned out?


What do ya think?  Isn't it cute?  M's bedding is black, white, gray with a little yellow, hence the colors.  I wish I had a picture of it on her bed.  Hope she likes it.



My daughter loved it so much, I had to make her one too.

I'm linking up to these parties:  The DIY Show-Off, It's So Very Cheri and

  6. CUTE! CUTE! CUTE! WHoooooooo knew that owls were the new adorable thing out there? I didn't, but I like it. You can do so many creative things with them because owls have such exaggerated features to begin with.

    You need to make some more of them. Ooh.. how about owls on clothes? That would be cute.
