Owls For Layla's Class

My granddaughter Layla is in the 3rd grade.  Her class is featuring owls in some of their studies. So, she wanted me to make something for the class. I haven't added pins to the back yet.  I wish I could say these were totally my ideas, but I happen to see a pin and tried my best.  She has them for sale here.  I know Layla will love them.

Owl Brooch

Lately I have been loving owls. You can see the great ones I've pinned here on pinterest.
Found this at Walmart for $3.00. I clipped off the top loop, filed it and added a small amount of black sharpie.
Cut out one of the flowers from this thrifted scarf. I glued the charm to the flower, then added some felt on the back to add some stiftness and glued on a pin.

Kitty Cat Wall Hangings

In the late 1980's I made this wall hanging for my Mom.  I remember finding this pattern in an old Better Homes magazine. I had to enlarge the pieces by getting some 1 square inch graph paper and drawing the pattern. Around 2005 she gave it to my grandchild Layla. So I quilted it, put some soft backing on it and added binding trim. Her Mom had put it up during the move to their new house. She found it last week and Layla fell in love with it.  Ruby wanted me to make her one.
I had forgotton I made this one for my sister Vickie. When my niece Ashley was going through some of her things she found it and gave it back to me and I  put it up.

Just found it the other day and showed it to Ruby. I quilted and put new binding and a flannel back and she adores it.
