Hedwig the Baby Owl Hat

So I have been seeing these adorable Owl hats all over the Blogo-sphere, and I really wanted one but I can't crochet or knit; so I had to sew one. I didn't have a pattern so I had to make one myself. I like how it turned out, and I can't wait to see the little baby head in there.

I used a white fleece Ikea blanket for the hat, and I used felt for the eyes and the beak. It took me about an hour, seeing as I had to get up 10 times because I forgot something; by the time I get my huge pregnant butt downstairs to the sewing room and back up again, panting like a hippo, hours have gone by and I need a nap.
Me at 37 weeks and exploding.......

But at least I did it and this was something on my list that I have been wanting to get done for the baby. I think tomorrow I will make baby blankets even though I have more than enough; but I have the most awesome pink and brown minky fabric that I got for Christmas.  We will see how I feel.
