Owls and more

Babies are so much fun to sew for!! Here’s another rag quilt. The green looks a little faded but the nursery colors are green and brown owls.

I used minky and fleece and put flannel on the back.

And, of course, the toy to match.

Here’s a practical idea that turned out cuter than I aimed for it to.

Burp pads and receiving blankets to match.  On a prefolded diaper I added a simple machine embroidery animal, some decorative stitching down the sides and added flannel to each end. The instructions for the burp pads are found here. On the receiving blanket I used 1 yard of fabric and just rounded the corners and used a double overlock stitch. Quick and easy shower gifts.

I'm a wife, mother and grandmother and I love to make things, especially sock monkeys. They're great for all kinds of gifts, birthdays, baby showers, etc. Kids love them and so do adults!! I've made many football players, including Peyton Manning, Tony Romo and Tom Brady, and character monkeys like Rainbow Brite and the Grinch.
