MEET OLLIE!!!



ollie is the newest love of my life! isn't he just the cutest?!?!?!

while i was surfing blogland yesterday, i stumbled across while she naps and i saw the cutest lil owls that were in one of the japanese craft books she had that is taking the craft world by storm.

later on, i found crafting japanese who posted a link to craftster where the pattern was posted.

i printed the pattern out, stared at it for about 30 minutes, broke out the sewing machine, started cutting out what i thought would be the pattern, and began to sew. mistake number one was born. i stared at the pattern again for about another 15 minutes and then finally the lightbulb went off. about an hour after i broke out the sewing machine, ollie began to come to life!!!

oh look at him! i could just eat him up. i was going to put in the mail sometime this week, but i think i will keep him. i will go make him some friends that can go out in the mail.

that is the cutest owl I have ever seen. Good for you! It's so easy for us to give all our goodies away. I'm glad you're keeping him and even more glad you're going to make more! :o)
