    I am finally able to upload pictures, so I want to share my new project. I found a pattern for an owl stuff animal and am making that for my youngest. I decide that I could adapt the pattern to make my oldest a tote. Here is the front. I am going to line the tote with the orange like the beak and also make the handles out of that as well. I fused on the body and hand stitched around it. I am very excited as I just figured out how to do the blanket stitch. Sorry to ramble, hope you enjoy the picture. I will be sure to post it when it is done and some of my quilts too. :D

    cute owl, and will make a cute tote, too. You did great on your stitching, and I like her with blue eyes. ( I say her, bc of the eyelashes, although, my hubby's are yummy too! :wink: )

    How great! I LOVE the colors. Who makes the fabric? Retro-modern pattern and colors.

    What a great idea for a cell phone pouch. I might have to attempt that.

    Pea Soup

    Believe it or not I found the fabric at Joanns as fat quarters when they had the last buy two get one free. The pink and blue are small scraps left over from the very first quilt I made her.

    Thanks for all the great comments everyone!
    I hope she enjoys it :wink:
