Once upon a time, there was a small brown owl named Caramel. He was lonely and looking for a friend.
He spied some beautiful flowers.
But there was only a busy beehive getting ready for winter.
Later he met a very cute, but possessive, mustachioed pig, who wouldn’t share any of his newest fabric!
And then he happened upon a friendly hedgehog and her baby, who invited him to join them for tea.
Finally, he wandered into the forest where he met a friend at last!
All of the owls in the making of this story were sewn by my oldest daughter who is now addicted to sewing stuffed animals. I had to sew the openings closed for her (and unfortunately I still don’t know how to do a ladder stitch so the closures are pretty rudimentary). We are desperately in need of quality felt so she can make some of the animals from this book, which was delivered today. Does anyone have any suggestions where we should buy it? Etsy is good, but there is so much to choose from, I have no idea where to start.
The story was inspired by Rachael of Blue Mountain Daisy. She always has the cutest and most creative posts with flowers, props, and clever stories. If you don’t read her blog, you really should! It will make you smile every time.
Have a wonderful weekend!
