These little treasures are made up out of old grown out of babygros, so they are a special keepsake and reminder of your baby's first outfits. I think this is a much nicer idea to make the onsies into a toy that can be on display rather than keeping outfits in a drawer somewhere.
I have seen loads of handmade owls recently and for inspiration I simply google image searched owls and of course looked on Pinterest. In the end I decided to make my own pattern, just drawing out a simple owl outline shape, a goggle shape for the eyes and oval shapes for the wings on the side.
All the detail I hand stitched, mainly using a blanket stitch in contrasting thread so the stitches became part of the detail. I then used my machine to sew up the main shape.
All these little outfits were either Baker Baby or Cath Kidston! That's one cool baby! But the patterns were lovely to work with and I think look really effective together on this rag doll owl.
I am now taking commissions for these little babygro bears and owls. If you would like one simply email me email@example.com to discuss prices etc.
