This is my first pattern I've done that hasn't been in a kit (mind you I've only done one of those and its collecting dust in my craft closet unfinished).
It took about 3 hours (or two evenings of watching tv) and was a quick and cute project.
I ended up just google searching "Owl Embroidery Designs" and came across a cute pattern that is posted here -> http://zuill.us/andreablog/
Since this is my first time doing this I wasn't really sure how to get it onto my Aida cloth, so I just ended up doing it kind of a ghetto way and printed off the design, taped it onto a bright lit window, and traced it onto the cloth. It was kind of a pain but it worked.
Now I just need to iron it and find a cute vintage frame for it.
I'm already looking for another quick pattern to do up, I'm thinking a sugar skull next.
Anyways, here it is...
