Owl softie and card

I am so lucky to belong to a wonderful group of online Mamas with July babies. We share stories, ask advice, and share our experiences. I have not met any of the ladies in real life as most of them live in America, but it always good to know there is someone I can turn to when I have a question or just need to vent.

We participated in a Valentines present exchange, and my baby boy was paired up with a sweet wee girl called Natalie. Her mum wasn't too fussy about colours of theme, so I turned to my new favourite website, Felt. I found an adorable owl softie from the seller stitchaholic and immediately knew it would be a great personalised present for Natalie.

The whole process was so easy- the seller emailed me some fabric options and I chose the design, and then she made it and posted it to me. She was quick and efficient with her emails, and I was so thrilled with the end result!

Look at that cute owl fabric! The wings fold close over the softie, it has a rattle inside and the owl came in a purple organza bag ready for gift giving.  The owl can also be made in a bigger size. Such a cute and unique gift for babies that can be easily customised- check out her Felt store for more fabric and colours.

Note: I was not paid or asked to write this review- I am doing this because I loved the product!

Of course, I had to make a card to go with the owl softie and this is what I came up with.


The owl and hearts are from retired stamp sets. I used baker's twine for the balloon strings and popped the hearts up on Foam Squares for some pop. The sentiment was punched out then inked to stand out, and I added some red paper to the edges of the card for some interest.
