Adorable Owl Jumper

 Owl admit it (bwahahaha!)... this may be the cutest thing I've  ever sewn.  I love how it turned out, and I really love that it turned out this well on my first attempt.  I was thinking that this may have been one of those great-in-concept projects.  But when I saw my little owl-lover in her new jumper (sidenote: she also makes the most adorable owl cooing sound), I wanted to go and kiss my sewing machine. 

And I also really love the fabric, a recent fabric.com purchase.  I could probably buy up their entire inventory. :)

It's a little difficult to tell in these pictures, but the broown on the skirt is actually the owl's wings.

EDIT: The tutorial is UP!  Go on over here!  Though Riley requested a giraffe jumper (which is also done.) Hmmm... you may get an owl first, little lady.  Oh, and I think I'll include a kangaroo pocket on Riley's.  The girl loves pockets.

For now, let's just revel in this cuteness.


Linky parties this little number is in...

I love comments more than I love buying new fabric, and that's saying something. :)
