A friend is having her second baby soon, and I made some goodies for it (the gender is a surprise). Since she has now received said gifts I finally get to post this! A group of us girls all get together for a game night about once a month and we all were to decorate a onesie for baby. Well, mommy-to-be is a big fan of owls so I knew right away that I wanted to go with an owl theme. I came across a tutorial to sew little felt owl ornaments HERE and adapted the pattern to make a larger stuffed owl toy first. Then I used the pattern to paint an owl on the onesie using acrylic paint mixed with fabric paint medium. I like how it came out, and so did mommy-to-be!
I also like to knit hats for new babies so I picked yarns that would go with my color scheme and came up with a little gray, white, and yellow striped double ribbed design. It should fit newborn-3months.
