Good Vibes Only Banner

Untitled

Hope your weekend is full of good vibes only!

This is a felt banner I made for Christmas. It's a super easy project. I cut out the felt letters from paper patterns that I hand drew (nothing fancy, as I like the "handwritten" look), sewed them on with 3 strands of matching embroidery floss, machine sewed a channel at the top for my dowel (ok, my sister did that part since she was already on the machine), and I made a pom pom and tassel for a little extra decoration!

Have a great weekend!

Little Mermaid

Untitled

Today I'm sharing a little mermaid I made for Christmas. She is a conglomeration of Disney's The Little Mermaid, Klara the Mermaid pattern by Cinnamon Purl and Mici the Mermaid pattern by Lalylala, and I'm so pleased with the result!

Pete & Pickles

Untitled

I haven't forgotten how to blog!! (I was afraid I had though I admit!) I hope you all had a wonderful holiday a happy New Year! I hope that this New Year will bring some new and exciting things to Signed With an Owl! So to kick off my return, I'm sharing these dolls I gave for Christmas that I was just thrilled with! I made an elephant and a pig pattern, and then dressed them up as characters in the fantastic book Pete & Pickles by Berkeley Breathed.

Victorian Lattice Baby Blanket

Untitled

I just love making baby blankets because they are great nearly instant gratification projects. For this one I was so excited for the excuse to try a square pattern that I kept seeing.

Rug Endings

Untitled

It's finished! I know I tend to take pictures of my feet, but in this case I only did to create a sense of scale. (Although I suppose that's not helpful, because for all you know I might have abnormally small or large feet... [I don't though, they are fairly average].) The rug ended up 40 inches in diameter.

Rug Beginnings

Untitled

Hey everyone! Is your summer going as fast as mine? Before any more time slips away, I thought I'd show you a new project that I started. My mom was out west for a bit of the summer, and she brought me back some Pendleton Wool selvages so that I could make her a rug...
