My Sunflower Owl Pillow

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!

Such a sweet little pillow friend! I've been running into owls all over the place, lately, wonder what that means?
