HANDMADE :: GIVEAWAY :: Win an Owl Headband!

Giveaway - Win an owl headband from Oaxacaborn and Ma Nouvelle Mode

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!

While you’re there, be sure to check out these other (group!) giveaways too.

P.S. Don’t want to wait to see if you won? The owl headband is available for purchase in my shop ;)

Bright striped beanies…and a wee willie winkie cap!

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. :-)

The Seafaring 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.

newborn baby onesie: embroidered owl applique from upcycled tshirt fabric

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.

[Update: Owl baby hats are now available via my Etsy shop!]

owl rings and owl skirts and owl hats…

Last Easter, we bought grandma this owl ring. She rocks it, huh?

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.]
