Owl shirt, maternity style

Annaliese's owl shirts have made an impression on her teacher, and she told Annaliese she wanted one. I just happened to have a turquoise maternity top that I had purchased for myself (but never stitched anything on it) so we were able to offer something to her right away. To be honest, it had been my intention to stitch an owl shirt for her at Christmas, but I ran out of time. It was a pleasure to do it now! Per her request, I used the same design and fabrics as Annaliese's turquoise owl shirt -- spirit-filled with school colors and mascot!

The applique design is Sly Owl from Tigerlilyhill Embroidery Designs. I enlarged it 15% since my hoop is bigger than the standard 5x7 hoop, and it stitched beautifully!

Next Friday Annaliese and her teacher are going to be twins so I can take a picture of them together in their matching shirts. I'll add it here or on Facebook.
EDITED TO ADD: Here they are!
