lola x 3

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!

what's not to love? an owl of your own, made with your personality in mind, with a promise of future love from the maker? perfect!!

You've been busy with your Lolas! They are so cute. Your heart must have melted when you saw your little guy sleeping with his owl. Great job, Mama!

Those are so beautiful. I love your explanation of your design choices, and the image of your boy sleeping while clutching one. Happy Mothers' Day!

They are so cute!! Avery really wants one so I may have to break out the sewing machine :) What a cute mom you are, lucky kids!

Precious! And I love how you chose fabric to fit each child's personality. Isn't it funny how they can all be so different.

The owls are darling and stitched with so much love. That is the best part.

Your owls are wonderful. Love how you chose the fabrics to compliment your kiddo's personalities! You will enjoy sneaking little notes into those pockets all year long - great job!

That's so sweet how much your children loved their owls. They are very sweet and I love the fabric combos you chose, and the pocket in the back is perfect. These would make a great place to put a tooth that has fallen out and for the tooth fairy to put some coins :) I think I need to make one eventually for Jackson!
