When my favorite, though threadbare, sheets started to rip, I had no choice but to patch them. And what better way to patch a sheet than with an owl applique.
Yes, yes, owls are everywhere. Very trendy, very popular, but I don't give a hoot. I think they're cute.
This was my first attempt using my sewing machine to zigzag stitch around an applique (I also used Wonder Under). It will take some practice to perfect the technique, but I think the patch is pretty secure.
This little guy has kept me company the last few days while I've been sick in bed.
Now if you don't mind, I think I'm going to go back and join him. I feel a nap coming on. Maybe more of a rest - I picked up New Moon from the library yesterday. I've got some reading to do.
