For the cutest and simultaneously overwhelming thing you’ll ever see. BAM.
Yes, that’s correct. This is a giant owl blanket bigger than I am. Awesome, yes? My friend Amy recently asked me to make a blanket for her baby. She’s waiting to find out the sex of the baby, and is using this owl and color scheme to decorate the baby’s room:

For some reason that owl made me remember a pattern I purchased about 3 years ago for absolutely no reason. Maybe I just knew I’d need it some day. Enter, pattern:
So I used Amy’s color scheme and this Simplicity pattern to create one whopper of a blanket.
Some of the orange and yellow squares for the stomach area (there were 48 of these. Wowza.)
Those same squares with fleece sandwiched between them.
Figuring out the placement.
The head. Is complete. (I had to turn it face-down when I was sewing the body because it started to freak me out.)
Everything is all sewn together! Then I had to make cuts into each seam, 1/2" apart.
Holy monotony. I seriously thought I was going to be doing that forever.
Then you wash it a couple of times to give it that soft frayed look, and there you have it. Done-zo.
