Hoot, Hoot

I had to put all of my sewing projects on hold because my sewing machine broke. :( I'm in the process of finding a nicer one to replace it.

Luckily, I did get to do a bit of hand sewing last night. I wanted to make something for my mom for her birthday and remembered a cute owl pillow that I had seen at a local fabric store. I drafted a simple pattern on pieces of tracing paper and dug around in my trash bag containing little scraps of odds and ends. It took about three hours from start to finish, and it turned out to be really cute.


As you can see, the little yellow heads sticking out of its stomach section signify that my mom intends to use it as a pin cushion. It's not a voodoo doll.
