What are you most proud of? This was my first chance to use the blanket stitch on my sewing machine, and my new-found basic embroidery "skills." I was surprised to see the pattern had darts--- but they give it a nice shape.

Maybe I'm stretching it here, but the fabric combination for your owl is perfect. The eyes look like glowing moons and the blue is perfect for night sky.

Thanks so much, Michelle! I do like the outer fabrics but ended up disappointed in the lining. It is a muslin I had hand-painted with pale blue swaths in a fabric painting class. I should have taken more care when I cut it to show more of the blue. Ah, well, live and learn. I will definitely make more of these!
