Man, owls are seriously the new hedgehogs in my life. You may recall I’ve mentioned my owl obsession before. Well, it’s only grown bigger, because I got a bunch of owl gifts for Christmas! So fun! [I am still a huge hedgehog fan, in case you were wondering. In fact, woodland critters in general make me happy.]
I also made a few owl gifts this Christmas, including these little felt ornaments from the pattern in Fa la la la Felt:
I really love crafting books, because they do the hard work of coming up with a good pattern and I get to do the fun stuff – the details! The pattern called for buttons, but I only had some beads. And I switched up colors and stitching details too.
Luke was very interested in trying to grab these, so I decided to make him a little stuffed owl. He always gives a big smile when we pull it out, so I’m pretty sure he’s an owl fan too (it may have something to do with his woodland-themed room, I’m not sure…).
It makes my heart very happy to see Luke enjoy his first mama-crafted toy. I’m sure there are more to come.
What do you think? Are owls the new hedgehogs, or will my prickly friends make a comeback in the mainstream market?
