HOOO Loves You

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!

Old Mac gets the kids a stuffed animal every year for Valentine's . Owls seem to be HUGE right now so I decided to see if I could make one. I told Old Mac that if he couldn't tell what it was when done he could go get them an animal from the store. Tee Hee.

I had an adorable owl done by Ashley at Make it and Love it saved in my "to do" folder. It didn't look too difficult so that was the one I decided to try. I followed all the steps on her tutorial and it was actually super easy! I don't know all the proper lingo for sewing and would probably have you totally lost in a matter of minutes. Thanks to Ashley you can just follow her awesome steps!! She even has a great one for hand stitching in case you need help with that too.

This little project only took me a few hours yesterday to work on. I already had the old scarfs stashed away. I also had a few felt scraps but not enough. I went to Dollar Store over the weekend and discovered they had a stack of felt. The colors were limited but I knew they would work. I could have gone to the craft store and bought the sheets there, but this gives me lots of extras for future projects. I hand stitched the wings and nose on but hot glued the eyes.

This little project turned out super cute and Old Mac knew what it was supposed to be. I only spent a grand total of $1 for this little craft! The kiddos will be getting them for Valentine's Day later today!!
