Giant Owl Floor Pillow

A few weeks I told you I was going to participate in the Shape Family Challenge hosted by Tales of Cloth. I have finally finished my project and can show it to you! I was sick last week, so I was cutting it right down to the wire with this project!

I made an owl entirely out of EPP pieces! And not just any owl, an giant Tula Pink owl! And then I turned him into a giant 36" round and 7" deep floor pillow!

Originally I just planned a circular quilt with the crescent moon but then as soon as the circle was cut I knew it had to be a giant pillow! I backed it with this awesome Tula Pink sparrow pint. I love the fun dots!

It's a little hard to tell in the pictures, but I actually fused sparkly silver fuse to the white pearl essence fabric for the moon. I always love to add a little extra bling!

My son thinks its the best thing ever. He's been jumping on and laying on it ever since it's been done!

Even the cats are in on the action!

This is where the owl started. It doesn't even look like an owl really. I sent my sister this picture and she said she loves shape puzzles and was coming over! Many glasses of beer later, we got the owl to it's final magnificent state! We had so much fun!

This was such a great project and I'm so glad I did it! I always wanted to play around with a giant pile of EPP pieces and see if I could make my own pattern. Now I know I can! Here is the link to the Tales of Cloth Blog and this challenges link up! Tales of Cloth Shape family Challenge
