I wasn't sure if this should go in my family blog or my sewing blog, I decided on this one.
I posted a few months ago about how I thought I would like to do an owl theme the next time we had a baby. Well then I got pregnant and it became a reality. I've always wanted to sew my own baby crib gear but never found any owl material worth using (it was either to girly, or just fugly). Even though I am having a girl, I wanted to keep the crib stuff neutral and green because I don't want her to feel that she needs to be a pink frilly baby all the time (but she does have 2 Grammas who have bought her the cute frilly pink stuff I can't wait to dress her in!).
ANYWAY before I go too off track, I looked around to see if there was an affordable crib set with Owls and they were either too girly or had other woodland creatures on them, so I had to set out to find the material of my dreams.
Joann fabric must have heard my prayers for something Green, and Neutral and with owls only because I am now in love with this fabric and will start sewing stuff for her when my parents come down to visit.
Here is a peek at the "before" it gets sewn.
The front of the Blanket (I like the Owl who is lifting his wing, almost as if saying "sup")
I think that this is going to be the back of the blanket, I'm not sure yet, it could be a whole separate blanket possibly.
Here is a close up of the last fabric piece
My mom sent me 2 more piece of matching fabric in the mail (she bought the first big Owl Piece as well)

Needless to say, I am excited to start the actual blankets, hoping they turn out (with minimal swearing involved) and any finished results will get posted on sew effing bored.
