My new baby's nursery is owl themed. Here are some pics:
First, the mobile. I wanted owls and in the colors that would match his room. So, I took an old mobile apart and just used the bones of it. (It was an $8 mobile from Ross).
Then, I sewed these little dudes. They are just fabric, with felt eyes and beaks. I stuffed them with pillow stuffing.
I covered the rest of the mobile with fabric and put it all together.
Then I made some more owls just like these, but big, for pillows. I used stuffing to stuff the body, but cellophane to stuff the wings so they are "noisy."
Then I made a blanket to match. I put stuffing under the owl and the polka dots so it will be fun for the baby to touch.
