I’ve expanded a bit beyond owl hats this time around (although there are still plenty of those). Now introducing dolls, quirky creatures, and hats with Japanese Kokeshi-inspired faces!
Which one is your favorite?
See all the new Winter 2012 items.
Enter to win an owl headband at Ma Nouvelle Mode! It’s one of my original designs, and I’ve hand embroidered it with vintage cotton thread. Since it’s entirely felt-backed, the owl slides easily along the elastic headband. Comfortably fits both adults and kids!
P.S. Don’t want to wait to see if you won? The owl headband is available for purchase in my shop ;)
This latest round of hats is all about bright colors, perfect for brightening up the October gloom.
And see those gray and pink stripes? I’m in the middle of experimenting with something I haven’t put in the shop before…a gnome-style wee willie winkie cap! It will, of course, have an owl. :-)
Oooh, it is so fun to see photos of people wearing items you’ve made! You creative people know what I mean. :-)
This particular hat was a custom order for a yellow-striped hat incorporating both an owl and an anchor. Of course, I couldn’t help but dub him “The Seafaring Owl”.
And isn’t Kalie beautiful? She took these photos as a part of a 365 Photo Challenge.

as i was sorting and putting away some of my lovely Christmas gifts, i found it quite delightful how all these items were unexpectedly colour-coordinated! aren’t they just so pretty?
Squee! Just finished making this little owl applique for a newborn onesie. I had an old green t-shirt that was destined to become a rag, so I used a piece of that fabric for the owl’s body. I used standard thread for the embroidery. It’s not perfect, but then again, baby will only wear this for the blink of an eye before she outgrows it.
tiny little shoes with owls on them.
Then this week, I was reading the newest Soul Flower catalog (which is amazing, by the way) and I couldn’t take my eyes off this lovely owl skirt:
The inspiration was too much, so I created a little baby owl beanie. [Update: You can now purchase baby and toddler owl hats at my Etsy shop.]
