Owl Burp Cloth

A friend from my Navy days just had her baby, so I made some burps to send to little Emery (isn't that a great name?) 

"Green Bean" font from 8Claws--I love it!

I felt like a bit of a stalker when I was checking out her nursery board on Pinterest, but was very happy to see that she pinned some owl stuff in similar colors after I had already stitched these!

If you want to stitch this owl, I will warn you--the eyes could be digitized better.  I had to do some hand-stitching to fix where the eyeballs unraveled a little.  If I stitch this guy again I will move some stitches using my embroidery software, to make the ends more secure.  Digitizers, if you're reading this, it's much better to stitch details like this from the outside in, both sides, so they meet in the middle!

I also made one last set (are you reading this Shawna?) for my sister to gift.  Her husband has identical twin sisters and their babies will be just a few months apart.  I already made a set for one sister-in-law (the ones for baby Piper); this set is for the other sister-in-law.
