OA Fabric!?!

Hey everyone!  Today on the October Afternoon blog, they are showcasing fabric... yes, that's right... you can now get OA product in fabric form.  Woohoo!!!  The first release is Farm Fresh. 

It is available in Cotton and Flannel.  OA will not be selling it themselves, but it can be purchased at FatQuarterShop

The OA designers were all sent some samples to play with, and I decided to try my hand at a little plushie owl.

I went to Pinterest to look around for some inspiration.  (I found tons!)  I grabbed bits and pieces of elements I liked from multiple little owls, added a few of my own, and pieced it together.  I am somewhat of a novice sewing on fabric, so I just sort of winged it.  No real pattern to follow.  And since this is my first time to really making anything like this, there are lots of little mistakes.  (I definitely need to work on my finishing skills.)  Luckily, this type of project lends itself well to imperfections. ;)

Make sure you stop by the OA blog here to see the wonderful projects the rest of the design team came up with.  There are some really great ideas!  Oh... and don't forget to leave a comment over on the OA blog for a chance to win a Fat Quarter of all of the Farm Fresh patterns.  The winner will be announced Monday October 3rd. 

That is it for me today.  Hope you all have good one.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
