|My version of her little owl purse|
I know, I know, I said I was done with owls after I made my twin nieces these hats, but my sister (who is also on the Pinterest bandwagon now and even has a to-do board for me) has a whole board of owls pinned, and they are just so cute. I'm not even into owls and I want to make them! It sounded like a quick project so I decided to make the girls some to match their hats.
|I added 2 extra rounds to the bodies--these are|
still fairly small, but just the right size for a toddler
There was no occasion that called for gifts, which I think is the best time to give :)
|I was almost out of pink & purple, so I |
made the backs a solid black
I think they're really cute and am so grateful for the free pattern--isn't it amazing how many generous people there are online? I should also mention that I tried a few of the photo tips from this post by Disney at ~Ruffles and Stuff~ . I think I still like my wood floor background, and it's a lot easier to squeeze a photoshoot in when I can do it at night, inside my house, no matter what the weather & with the kids asleep. But it was fun to try to something new.
|This is with a 3T shirt, to give you an idea of scale|
(remember, I added 2 extra rounds, which is about
2 inches of width with the yarn/hook I used)
I have to admit, taking photos is not my strength and it was what held me back from starting a blog for so long. So I've been just focusing on taking clear photos without background junk & trying to make them look somewhat interesting composition-wise considering I have NO eye for that sort of thing. Since I no longer have aspirations of becoming a world-famous blogger, I think I will mostly stick to what makes me comfortable and gives me more time with my family. I hope you still enjoy spending time here :)
