04 Nov Cake and Make Club: October
Gwen is our October birthday girl for the Cake and Make Club. She received my gifts today so I can finally share them with you.
OWL EMBROIDERY HOOP: I noticed on Gwen’s Pinterest page that she likes owls so I wanted to make her something special with that in mind. I used the book Hoopla as inspiration to make her an owl embroidery hoop.
It’s hard to see in the picture, but I used straight stitches in various colors to secure the owl onto my linen.
I used french knots for his eyes and more straight stitches for his legs. His glasses are made from silver jewelry wire that I bought at Joann’s. To give Mr. Owl a finished look, I hot glued yellow pom-poms around the outside of the hoop. It was a little hard to give him away once he came to life.
CALENDAR: My sister finally listed her adorable 2015 calendars that she’s been working so hard on. I wanted to buy one for Gwen so she can start the new year out in style.
