Happy Monday everyone!
I am so excited to show you my New Sunflower Owl Pillow!
He is a hybrid of two patterns I just love.
One is the FUN Owl Pillow pattern I purchased on Etsy and the other is a FREE pattern I found online for a Record Pillow!
I loved the ribbed circular design so much that I used it for the owl's tummy instead of making it into a fabulous record like my friend Lynne did!
It is so cute that I cannot wait to make one of those too!
I had so much FUN using my new self striping wool yarn that I purchased from Universal Yarn!
The one I chose is called Apple Orchard!
I wanted to decorate his tummy so I made a sunflower design which is inspired by the wonderful art my friend, Nancy Medina, creates!
Everything she paints makes me so happy that this sunflower just magically appeared from my hands & crochet hooks!
...and of course I had to add the sleepy eyes, feet and wings to this owl too as I did to the first and second owl pillows I made!
I just love how he turned out and now he lives in a very special space that I will unveil to you tomorrow!
Fred and I have been busily creating it over the last few weeks.
We have kept it quiet as it is a special place that is a surprise for R-Chee too!
See you tomorrow!
Melissa & R-Chee
