Want to smile?


Hi everyone!  I’d like you to meet Olympia — a sweet little owlet that I started during the Olympics and just finished this morning.  (Yes, my life has been crazy lately, ha ha!)

Olympia is flying off to live with my friend Emily, who makes amazing flower corsage pins out of recycled sweaters.  They are so soft and pretty.  I feel so lucky to have one, and wearing it really makes me feel happy! (Emily makes other super cool felty things, and she’s a stamper, too!  You should grab a cup of tea and check out her site. And! Emily passed along this video where she learned how to make the flowers.)

So of course, I had to make a flower for Olympia, too.


(Supplies: It’s been a while since I’ve shown an owlet — here are more! And, this is the pattern that I use, but I’ve modified it a bit.  I found that super fun packing tape from Torendi — Olympia was sitting inside it on my desk and I thought it would make a great picture — totally unplanned, hee hee.  The tape is designed by Shinzi Katoh — one of my favorite designers, love everything that he does.)

What has made you smile today?  I’d love to hear!
