Well, I finished my owlette project but it didn't turn out quite like I had expected. Still, considering that this is the first time I have ever used a sewing maching, it's not too bad. I had a lot of fun doing it too. My mom insisted on keeping the first owlette since his brethren will be undergoing a redesign. I am thinking smaller, more square, and I need to do something about the eyes. Something is off there.
