Only two weeks late ...but, I finished the kids' Easter owls this week. For Easter morning, I laid the cut out fabric pieces under their baskets, so they knew there were owls waiting in the 'wings' for them. They were thrilled when they saw the fabrics I had chosen for each of them. I have to say they stayed vigilant in asking me about the progress I was making on their stuffed friends. I made each of them to suit their personalities and bedrooms....
for Maggie ~ my dramatic, fun loving, vibrant first born
for Mckenzie ~ my pink loving, friendly, happy go lucky girl
for John Samuel ~ my steady, hard playing, still loves to cuddle boy
Each of the owls has a pocket on the back for secret love notes and hidden treasures.
These were so fun to make and give....Virginia did an exceptional job writing up the pattern and it's a fun way to try out some great fabric combos. All the owls have found new nests on each of the kids' beds and as I went in to kiss John Samuel last night, I found him fast asleep, holding his owl under his arm....perfect!
