I was glad to discover this little owl in my scraps box, an owl that I embroidered a long time ago, at the very beginning of my sewing adventure. A free pattern for this Little Owl can be found here or on the Pattern page on the blog. I turned it into a simple label that sits nicely on the Blue Caterpillars fabric from the Butterfly Dance Collection by Cinderberry Stitches by Natalie Lymer.
I made five large pockets that easily fit one thick pencil or two pencils of a regular size. For now, five pencils is more than enough for our artistic scribbles. On the right side there is one large pocket for a notebook. The tape with the numbers gives a nice firm edge to the pockets.
For the closure I decided to use a fabric covered button and a simple hair elastic. It's quite loose, but it would be great for practicing fine motor skills for my little one.
The leather "handmade" label is really made by hand by a very talented Tabby. We had a little private swap. I made her a mug rug and she sent me the most beautiful flipbook with lovely handmade goodies. So this label found a perfect home.
So now my little boy has his own magical world of tiny pictures. He can draw or simply look at all the cute pictures and play his game of "What is it?" with me.
Happy sewing and happy unexpected inspirations! Larisa xox
