Here is my new Hoot, I think I'll call him Appleblossom.
That, or Pinkeye. Which do you prefer?
I'm churning through these now, and I love the opportunity it's giving me to be really creative with my fabrics.
For this one, I used some printed canvas drill on the front that I picked up at Spotlight in Penrith a few weeks ago.
I matched it with a crisp red and white floral vintage cotton that came to me via a friend whose mother was clearing our her stash. Classic red polka dot ears seemed the best match I could make with that.
And I tied in the orange from the flower print, with orange corduroy feet as well.
On the reverse side, I chose an ice-blue and chocolate Jennifer Paganelli print.
All my Hoots are designed so that you can play peekaboo with the wings, and the blue of this fabric really matches the blue in the flower print on the front.
And to finish, a tiny sprigged floral canvas drill that I've had in the cupboard for ages. Isn't it nice when you can finally use some fabric that's been in the stash for a long time, just waiting for the right thing?
