I wanted to make it look like a bedroom, so I added a window to the side. I used the "here comes the sun" digital kit by Kaye Winiecki and had it printed up at Costco.
Then we have hanging owls… just like from my monster party.
However… they took some serious time. ( I'd keep a couple in the car with me, so when I was picking up from dance, tumbling, school etc… I could work on them). But honestly I really enjoyed making them. I could tackle them at night, after the kids were in bed, and stitch while watching a program with J that we had on the DVR or Netflix. They were oddly therapeutic too... I could just chill on the couch and blanket stitch away. (Oh, here is a fabulous tutorial I used to learn how to blanket stitch). Additionally we had to come up with 13 unique owls. Good night! My girls and my husband were a great help. I was stuck around eight…it helps to have several minds helping out. They also assisted me in writing a little spotlight for each owl. (I debated on writing these all out on the blog, but I've found that generally someone asks me for stuff like this, so I thought I'd add it now just incase someone wanted them). Here they are…
So we showed Pixar short films collection.
While they were watching, I was able to start cleaning up a bit and get everything ready for cake and ice cream.
I think he turned out adorable.
Hi all... I've gotten so many requests for the owl pattern I thought I'd add a link
at the end of this post for my etsy shop. I've also got adoption cards, cupcake toppers, invitations & my bed drawings available too.
If you'd like to take a looky-loo here is the link...
Have a spectacular day!
