Cake and Make Club: October

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. DSC_0089

It’s hard to see in the picture, but I used straight stitches in various colors to secure the owl onto my linen.  DSC_0091
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.  DSC_0096
