Sometimes a pattern designer just wants to follow a pattern that was designed by someone else. No stopping and taking notes, no photographing steps, no proof-reading, and no long, long hours at the computer writing up the pattern. Sometimes it's nice just to make a project! I did just that today. My friend Heather from the Sewing Loft was telling me about a pattern she was preparing to release. When she showed me the picture, I jumped on the opportunity to test it out for her. It was just too cute to pass up!
The pattern was well written, easy to follow, had lots of full color photos, and took well under three hours to complete. Naturally I decided to make it in the colors to match my craft and sewing room. Doesn't he look cute sitting up against my jar of beads? That is where he is going to stay.
I thought I'd take full advantage of National Sewing Month and work on some projects I've been wanting to stitch. I can't tell you what they all are though because some are Christmas gifts and my recipients are probably reading my blog!
If you want to make up your own Ollie the Owl, you can pick your pattern up at Heather's shops!
