Owl Swap

I keep doing these swaps. They are strangely addicting. It is so hard to pass them up when the theme is some sort of cute animal. Anyway these are the things that I made for the owl swap that just got over.

First is a dish towel with my happy owls printed on it.

Then a wristlet made from really cute Japanese owl fabric that I got at this tiny Japanese fabric store in Gardena called Towa Fabrics. I also embroidered little owls in the corner.

This is a stuffie/pincushion that my swap partner has since named owlfred and decided that no pins are allowed to pierce his flesh

This is my absolute favorite. For some reason it took a really long time to get partners matched up for this swap so I got really antsy waiting to start crafting. I had just done the last apron swap so I was kind of in an aprony mood and decided to make an apron using the owl tea towel fabric from Marukai 98cents, my vintage mushroom ribbon from Idaho and plain broadcloth printed with the happy little owls. I made it and loved it so much I decided I couldn't give it away so I made this one, with green fabric instead of yellow, for the swap.

The next swap I'm doing is a mobile/windchime swap of which I will definitely have to post pictures of the finished product. After that I am swearing off swaps for a bit. I'm going to try to concentrate on making stuff for my etsy shop.
