An Owl Pillow - a must-have for fall
According to an article in today's Your Home section of the newspaper- "If you give a hoot about your decor, be aware that one design element is a must-have this fall: an owl." I just finished this owl pillow yesterday. I had ordered the book, Curiosities & Mischief, by Nancy Halvorsen, from my local quilt store and I picked it up on Wednesday. I had fallen in love with the owl pillow they had on display.
I am making Sister Owl Pillows for my niece's two daughters. They share a room and the colors are pink and green. This is Sister # 1 and I finished her last evening. (Before I knew she would be a "must-have".) Today I began on Sister # 2. She has a pink polka dot body and green wings. By making them with the same fabrics but reversing colors, I'm hoping they won't fight over the pillow!
I'm now thinking I "must-have" one of these pillows for my sofa. Maybe I'll make one in vintage fabrics from my vintage fabric collection.
