I was sorting out the baby clothes that the Marshmallow has outgrown. And as Spring is springing, some of the winter clothes aren’t necessary anymore and will be too small by next Autumn-Winter.
So I had a pile of baby sweaters… and my heart wanted to keep them, not donate them. I don’t know why, but it’s the way it is! I listened and decided to make an Owl Time Capsule Pillow, using the old jumpers as the cushion stuffing.
What I did
I Pinterested all the stuffed fabric Owls I liked. Found one I knew was in my capabilities of making and then stuffed it with baby sweaters.
Although to make a nice, even stuffing, I had to cut the arms and buttons off the sweaters, they’ll still be whole enough to bring back all those toddler memories when my Marshmallow is old enough to be having children of his own.
I was five months pregnant when I picked the fabric that I am only just now using – as it turns out – for Owl wings and eyes! I enjoy knowing that those occasions when I find a fabric I just love-love-love, I sometimes don’t know what it shall be used for. Some future project, as yet unknown. And luckily, at the time, I had the money to cough up for it. Not so right now, I’m using up what’s in my Tardis Craft Cupboard. And I like it!
