Last week was teacher appreciation week at my daughter's school. In addition to a gift for her teacher, I also wanted to donate something to the Assistant Principal's stash of door prizes that she gave away throughout the week to teachers. I've known about this... well since last year. But unfortunately personal projects with far off deadlines tend to get bumped to the bottom of my to do list until the last possible moment. Thankfully Sheila saved the day! I had a morning to myself to sew and was cranking through projects as fast as possible. I knew I wanted to put an owl on an apron for this donated gift, but WHICH OWL?? Before I had a chance to decide, Sheila asked if anyone was available to test this cute owl, so I hopped on the opportunity to help her and get my project done at the same time!
Savvy Stitches' Kookie owl while it's on sale, only a few are left at that price. :) This is the 6x10 size, and was a great opportunity to use this large scale turquoise gingham that I added to my stash last summer.
Golden from 8 Claws and a Paw. It's the right mix of pretty and whimsy to go with the kookie owl.
I’m not exaggerating when I say all of the teachers were hoping to win it!" :)
