This past weekend I went to a baby shower for a friend of mine that is expecting twins before the end of the year. Because owls are all the rage, I decided to make an owl inspired gift set. The first things that I made were the owl hats. I purchased the patter from RKAJ Patterns on etsy. She has a lot of great crocheted hat patterns, including monkeys, snowflakes, Santa and much more. Once the hats were complete I really wanted to make some outfits that would coordinate, so off to Target to pick up a package of onesies and some little pants.
I used an owl for a pattern that I had found over at Skip to My Lou and made it small enough to fit on these newborn onesies. Next stop was the quilt store where I found that great brown mirco fiber fleece that is soooooo soft and flannels of both the lime green and blue that matched perfect along with the brown print to bind the blankets and use as part of the owl applique. Last I added little squares of the flannel and print to the leg of the pants to make them coordinate with the rest of the owl ensemble.
Not wanting big sister to feel left out I made her a hat to match her baby brothers that will be interupting her world very soon. I think these owls hats are going to be a part of my future as I have several friends with little ones on the way. Like I said before owls are everywhere.
