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.

Hi Pam....Owls are everywhere this year. Love this pillow pattern and the fabrics you have used. The girls will love them, too. The owl in my post is a vintage vase made by Napco. I've had it for years as well as several others.

Believe it or not, I have a small collection of them...LOL..which I've been adding to recently as they seem to be everywhere. Mostly in a few pieces of jewelry.

I've been in the sewing pillows, too. They are going with Fleece Blankies as Christmas Gifts. I'm getting a head start this year. I'll have to post about them soon.

Thanks for visiting...always fun to hear about what you are doing.
