I finally got my copy of Doodle Stitching…and I was kind of surprised at what I decided to make first! I think I was excited to do a sewing/embroidery project since I just took a sewing class this weekend, too. And then, of course, there are the babies. All the babies that are arriving this spring. And these babies, they need little squishy handmade animals with cute stuff embroidered on their tummies, you know? I started this felt owl without a specific baby in mind (thinking maybe I’d make a whole fleet of them…and I still may), but I’m pretty sure I know who this one is for. 🙂 This owl is 4″ tall.
