What A Hoot!

This week I had time for a bit of sewing and 
decided to make an owl cushion. It's my little autumnal project,
inspired by walks outside with my girls, the colours of fallen leaves and 
my fondness for wise cute owls.

It was an easy project and was quick to make.
I just enlarged a pattern I already have and got all the fabrics
from my (ever growing) stash.

Some toy stuffing, a couple of vintage buttons and
she's finished!

Twit Twooo!!

Of course she's a girl!

She loves to accessorize with a little flower on her head.

She also likes to read,

arrange flowers

and sit outside in the sun.

She likes to play with the girls and doesn't mind too much
being pulled, poked and squeezed by playful little hands.

She was a joy to make although I was surprised
when her 'ears' turned out longer than I was expecting.
  But never mind we all think she's lovely!
She's a year round friend and not just for this season.
Hopefully soon we'll find her the perfect name.

What a hoot!!!

Thanks for reading!

Have a fun weekend!!!


  1. I really like your owl, what fun. My almost seven year old daughter is obsessed with owls right now and she'd love this. x

    1. Thanks Gillian! So sweet that your daughter likes owls too. Hope you're having a great week!x

  2. Thanks for checking out my blog. Two girls? I guess you will have to make another one now! It is really nice. Jo x

    1. Hi Jo! You're welcome. Yes, I have two girls. They're 'sharing' the owl at the moment but I might have to make another one soon! x
