Owl Warm Bag--Fat Quarter Challenge- and GIVEAWAY!

If you have followed this blog for any length of time, you know I am always up for a challenge!  Jesse from the Fat Quarter Challenge approached me about joining her challenge for a month, and you know I couldn't say NO.  How it works is she sends everyone competing in the challenge the same fat quarter and some notions to go with it.  You then send her a picture of your finished project, and vote. To participate in the challenge it costs a $12 monthly fee.  Jesse was nice enough to let me try it and blog about it for free!

Once I got the fabric, I knew I wanted to make an Owl warm bag... You know the kind you fill with rice, put in your microwave, then cuddle!  Perfect for cold autumn days!

I did not follow any specific pattern, but I found this post from Sugar Bee Crafts, and there is an excellent step by step tutorial by Simple Serendipities.

I started off by doubling up the fabric given and cutting my shapes.  I just did this free hand.  I also cut green felt for the wings, white felt for the eyes, and orange felt for the nose.

I pinned everything on the front side of the owl.  Then put the back of the owl, right sides together over the front, and stiched around it, leaving a hole for the rice.

I filled with rice and hand stitched the opening.

Now all you need to do is place in microwave for 2 minutes, and you have a warm cuddly owl!!

My daughter is thrilled!!  Go vote for your two favorite projects HERE!
