Minky Stuffed Owl

I have been wanting to take the plunge and try making things with minky fabric for awhile now, and I finally did it!! :)

Like I admitted before when I posted about my crochet owl that I make, I am head over heels in love with owls.  We will be moving into our new home hopefully before the end of August, and one of my first projects will be to decorate my daughter's room in owls.  I want to buy a vinyl tree for the wall, and just go crazy! :)  I am thinking I will still have a pink sheet, and simple curtains that can be used later, but I will decorate with all sorts of owls.

My first project with my new minky fabric was this plush owl.  I LOVE her!!  I made my own pattern.  She measures 8" tall and 7" wide.  Her wings, beak, and eyes are made out of cotton fabric, which is fun, because it leaves room for so many color combos!

I am so excited to put it my my little girl's Easter basket on Sunday!!  I think she's going to like it! :) 

If you would like to purchase your very own Minky Stuffed Owl, you can visit my etsy shop.  I have lots of other minky colors to choose from too!!
