Otis the Owl, fail!

Otis the Owl, fail!

Over the weekend I decided to make the cute owl I found on Pinterest. I cut out my fabrics last week to save some time so I didn’t have to do all the steps at once. Anyway I was pretty excited about the color combos I had picked out. My original goal had been to use a fancy, thick stitch around the face, eyes, nose and body. Then I would sew the little guy up. Well this is pretty much…

Ranty owls?

Ranty owls?

Seriously, how hard is it to just do your job and do it well?  It continues to amaze me how people just “forget” to do something.  Something freaking so simple.  GRRRRR!  *small rant over* In other news I have found the cutest (I hope) owl sewing template.  I was inspired by my friend Christi over at Beach Dreams and Love Always.  She posted the cutest little owl yesterday on Facebook.

I CAN SEW!

So one thing kind of lead to another.  Yesterday while I was blowing up perusing Pinterest I stumbled cross this cute little guy, a frog bean bag.  The a little later I saw an idea for homemade heating pads using rice or beans.  Hmmm.  {You see where this  is going right?}  Of course I thought I could totally do this.  AND I have a sewing machine I’ve been dying to use. This afternoon on Matt’s way home he stopped by…
