Meet Otis the Owl. I made this in about one hour right before Christmas for Baby Girl. Baby girl wanted a new comforter for her bed for Christmas. She had several different ones picked out. She liked the ones with peace signs, she liked the tie dyed ones, she liked the zebra print ones, and she liked the owl ones. Well, little did she know that way back in the summer Mamaw had gotten her one and put it back for Christmas. It was a peace sign one. On Christmas morning we open gifts at our house before we go to Mamaw's. So....she opened a tie dyed fleece blanket and then she got the zebra print "Otis the Owl". She was so disapointed. When she arrived at Mamaw's there was only one small present under the tree for her, not nearly big enough to have a comforter in it. Little did she know that Mamaw had tucked it away in the back room to surprise her, and boy was she surprised.
To make Otis I used a pattern I found here. I used a chenille bedspread that was no longer servicable to make the back. I basically used the pattern and put the pillow together the way I wanted. Thereare some things I will tweak when I make Otis again.
