Well, I’ve gone and done it again. I keep telling myself that I’m going to try new things and I keep making owls! I swear, they are growing on me. I’m hooked (no pun intended)!
I had the very great surprise of learning that our daycare provide is pregnant! A big congratulations! We couldn’t be more excited for her and her expectant belly. She is hands down one of the most nurturing, patient, and loving people and I feel so blessed to be able to have my daughter watched by someone like this each and every day. She also has a beautiful little girl who seems to follow in her mother’s footsteps. I know that she is going to be such a wonderful older sister, given the interaction I’ve seen between her and my own daughter.
I thought about what I wanted and I just keep thinking “owl.” This time I tried something slightly different. I made this hat for a 9 month old so that the baby (who I discovered is a girl!) will be able to use it next winter. I recently saw this uber-adorable owl hat from baby gap that was made out of fleece. Now, instead of just a traditional owl head, it also had these patches on the earflaps that served as the owl’s wings. Well, I thought, this is just a fabulous idea and I should try it!
I had a lot of fun with this interpretation of an owl hat. I love how the little nubby horns makes it seem more like a baby owl, and the little pom-poms instead of the traditional ties, balance out everything. I hope that the new owner loves it as much as I do and that it keeps her nice and toasty warm!
