Ethan is invited to a birthday party this week for a sweet girl in his class. I asked him what he would like to give her for her birthday gift and he requested that I make her something. We pulled out a pile of sweaters and he decided on the body of the owl. Ethan quickly tired of sorting through sweaters and began racing cars down a long box he brought into the Haybee Baby room. Ellia joined me in the sweater rummaging and we picked out eyes, a nose, a belly pocket, and flower embellishments.
Ethan's classmate can use it as a tooth fairy pillow, a car pillow, or she can store other little girl treasures in the pocket.
Total cost was about $2 including thread.
Time was about 1 hour.
I don't always have time to make birthday gifts but I thoroughly enjoy when I do.
