My little owl obsession has manifested itself over in the sewing department. I was browsing blogs and came across a mom who sewed a little owl onto her hoodie, I thought what a great idea to put on something for Greta. Sawyer about died over the owl and insisted I make one for him. And then Alissa had to get one too. Can't leave out any of my children! ;) Gunnar wasn't too thrilled with wearing owl embroidered clothes, so he had his heart set on a pouch made of some robot cloth I picked up. I'll have to photograph that soon too. The owls are all different, and I forgot to take a photo of Alissa's owl shirt before I mailed it off, but Greta insisted on one exactly like Alissa's so I will be making a duplicate soon enough.
I picked up the yellow t-shirt at Target for $5 and then spent about an hour on the owl itself. I hand stitched the eyes and nose, and then used the sewing machine for the owl body layers and wings, and to put it on the shirt itself. I absolutely love it and am tempted to make one for myself. . .
Here is Greta sporting her new shirt and a new headband I made as well.
Sawyer sat by my side the entire time I sewed his. He helped pick everything out and was my little cheerleader along the way. He would say things like, "good job mama", "you're almost done", "wow mama, that's going fast", and "i love it mama". He put it on immediately after I finished but insisted he take it off for dinner for fear of spilling something on it. This one has no aversion to anything I make, he is proud to sport mama's dippy sewing projects any day!
