And now for something completely different...

If it hasn't been apparent from my etsy items, I've been obsessed with babies lately! I'm not sure if it's a symptom of menopause or what, but I just go gaga over baby stuff! All the darling boutique clothing items on etsy have been giving me fits so badly that this weekend I knew that I had to sew something baby or go crazy! That's how I get- it's like a crazy itch that I have to scratch. All that to say....ta da!

I went to Hancock Fabrics Friday after work just to get a cardboard cutting board (remember those?) and of course, I just had to check out the sales and wouldn't you know it, McCall's entire stock was .89 each! Four patterns later, I had to see what fabrics might be on sale and I found this yummy peachy/cantaloupe polar fleece for only $1.97 a yard! Then, I found these amazing prints called Wild N Wooly and fell in love. Don't you love when everything comes together? The outfit is from McCall's M4280 and the owl is all my own design. Can I just tell you how much I love her? She is a big baby owl. Speaking of things coming together- the felt that I used for her features were already in my stash! They were a stack of wool felts that I bought at Hancock's a good 4 or 5 years ago. In fact, they are what I used for my Folkbirds. The pattern said this is for an 18-24 month old, but it looks big enough to fit a 3 year old. When I figure out who it will fit I'll list it in the shop.

Anywhooo, this has been what I call a fun weekend. I'm no different than I was when I was 8 years old- perfectly happy to be busily tucked away in my room making stuff and listening to the radio! Good times!
