Make Something Monday #12

Make Something Monday

Today, I wanted to share these two little owls that I made for a swap. These are made from yet another adorable Bit of Whimsy Dolls pattern. They sewed up so quickly, I think I had two completely made in about an hour. Well, take that back. Everything that I needed to do to them in the sewing room. I still had to add their faces and sew them shut after stuffing. Still--they went together so quickly and easily. I loved this pattern. Holly and Finn each grabbed an owl when I brought them out of the sewing room for finishing touches, and I considered just letting them have them and whipping together a couple more. But the deadline for the swap was close, so I finished them and snuck them away from the kids when they weren't paying attention. I'll make a couple up really soon for them. I think I will use flannel when I make theirs to make them extra soft and snuggly!

About This Blogger

I am a thirty-something mother of two girls and a boy ranging from preschool to middle school. My husband and I keep working and reworking on our goal of raising our family healthier. Our house is a constant work under construction--adding on and remodeling. We're happy to have bought our property a few years ago, but as any homeowners know, owning a home just adds to your list of projects and chores because there's always improvements to be made and maintenance to be done. On our burgeoning homestead, we have chickens, guineas, a few goats, and our most recent additions-rabbits.

About This Blog

I picked the name Petalz and Finz a couple years ago when I decided to try Etsy out. I wanted to custom make some baby related items and have things for girls and boys. I felt the name incorporated both my kids (at the time) into it--petalz for Ivy and finz for Finn.

I haven't had time to do much of anything with my Etsy for a while, but it's still my in my long term goals. In the mean time, I'm having fun with this blog thing. I've found some creative inspiration through my own posting, but also through many other wonderful blogs out there.
