Fun Fall Sewing Project! Owl Pillow

08 September 2011

Fun Fall Project! 
Owl Pillow

I had my adorable niece in town the last week of August!  She is going to college this fall!  It is so crazy to think that she is already graduated from high school.  And I have to laugh at myself because I so have those moments... you know the " I remember when you were 2 and you got into my makeup and crushed all my eye shadows all over the floor..."  Which she did!!

But it kinda cracks me up.  Because as a kid you roll your eyes at the reminiscing of old people... and now I am that old reminiscing person, and it is amazing how fast time flies, and how our concept of OLD changes... (I am so not old!)  Here are some pics from her visit!

Anyway since she is going off to college, we went shopping at the mall a lot (and my favorite thrift store! it was 75 cent day!  We both scored big time!) but when funds were running low we decided that it might be fun to make something and that something was an owl pillow.  

I miss doing little simple crafts- we are in big project mode for our house.  I had a lot of fun doing it too!

Here is what my owl looks like!

We went through a ton of fabric...in search of the best!  
'Liza (my niece) did a cute round sleeping owl in all sorts of colors.  

I decided to stick to a fall colors theme.  I thought that it might be fun to use with my huge candy corn pillows, I used a lot fo the scraps of fabric that I had left over from my lighted ragamuffin garland (pictured below!)

Here is the owl coming together!

and sewn on...

Etta helped me stuff it, she was in love with it immediately!  (yes the house was a mess, I decided it was time to go through all the girls clothes and purge... We have a LOT of baby clothes!)

Here is Liza and Etta loving on their owls.

Would you be interested in a pattern?  
Let me know.... if I get enough interest I will try to make one!

Oh, I LOVE that and would totally be interested in the pattern! My kiddos would get a kick out of having their own owls and I could customize them to their rooms. What a super cute idea and how special to spend that time with your adorable niece! :-)

I know I would love it if you shared a pattern. They both came out so great!

So cute! I'd love it if you shared a pattern. It looks terrific in its fall colors, too. Thanks for sharing.

This is adorable. Yes, I would love a pattern, please. Thank you so much. Who doesn't love owls?

The expression on the last picture of your baby,Lydia, is so priceless. She's getting so big, so fast! I have to admit I had to go searching for Lydia's name. What an expressive baby!

It's amazing how fast the kids grow. My neices and nephews are 14 to 22! My Godson just started college and is 18.

The pillows are adorable. Thanks for sharing!

I would love a shared pattern too...very cute! Did you make the bigger one that is on the couch with you too? Both are adorable!

What a fun time with your niece! Such a cute pillow, the girls are adorable with it. I love the baby with her big grin, so precious. At first when I saw the picture of your niece I thought it was you and that you cut off your hair! So, see you aren't that I old, I thought she was you :) And if you are old, than I am ancient LOL
