Hope everyone is having a fantastic week. I was excited to finish an Owl Mobile and a soft blue fleece blanket for a friend of mine who is having her first baby ...a boy. I got the idea for the Owl Mobile from a mobile shared by http://homemadebyjill.blogspot.com who also shared template for the tree, and from a cute owl template on another site juicy bits. Jerry created a really great dowel hanger for it. It was the first project I have handsewed from felt and it was relaxing to make it while watching tv in the evenings.
Joann Fabrics JoAnns Fabrics. I get a little more than a 45" length of the fleece. Then cut it to be 45" square and sew blanket binding onto the edges.
I am now going to start makin 2 Valentine t shirts for my grandchildren who live abroad. I purchased red tshirts and am going to applique pictures on them. Excited to get started. So many projects already in my "head" for the new year!!.....Hope to inspire some of you as I have been inspired by so many creative people who share their ideas!!!!
