Owl Amigurumi Family

Our family of four!

For this project I followed the pattern from Sarah over at Repeat Crafter Me. This was a really cute project that I completed in just a couple of days before our baby girl was due. I added a 4th owl and made a couple of adjustments to the number of repeats for the baby owls so that they would be different sizes.

 I also used safety eyes instead of sewing them. I also didn't sew the wings to the body, I like that they stick out. I really enjoyed making these and had fun with the color combinations!

Newborn Shadow Box

You may have noticed I have not blogged for a while, well, that's because I gave birth to our new baby girl a couple of weeks early! It was a very welcomed surprise because this mommy was very uncomfortable those last few weeks she was cooking!
Well now that she's here and we've settled in a bit I can resume working on the blog, I've missed it!
For this first post back I wanted to share the shadow box that I made for her room.


8x8 shadow box from Michaels
1 sheet of scrapbook paper
Hat from the hospital
birth announcement

I probably should've used a bigger shadow box but I like that it's simple and there isn't too much going on in there. The scrapbook paper is already pretty busy and I still wanted to be able to see it.
So, here it is!
