Whoooo? Whoooo? It's owls, of course.....

Look at these adorable fabrics! The lady at the store said that the black owl print is their most popular, it flies off the shelves. I just happened to snatch 2 yards of it yesterday. It is going to be a birthday present for a child that D#2 is friends with. The party is tomorrow night. They didn't want you to bring any gifts, but of course I have to give something. I plan on making a pillowcase and a crochet cupcake and sneak it over to their house, ring doorbell and run!! Of course while they are not at home. I can't run that fast, but I do like to play ding-dong ditch.

Above: I want to crochet a border, but not sure what color to use. Red would be very pretty, but might run in the wash, it's cotton yarn. White will show up-(the owl border is about 3 1/2" wide and the other wilder material is the body of the pillowcase)-but not as pretty as the red. I do have yellow, but the yarn is a little wider and may not crochet as well. I'll just have to dig in and experiment.

Above: Just love these two materials and thought that I would share a picture of them.

This is a present for someone's birthday. Hint: their birthday falls on Groundhogs Day this year.
Have a great and crafty day,
