Hey there! We hope you had an amazing Independence Day last week and that some of the tutorials and recipes we shared made planning the day easier. Today we wanted to shift back to our summer craft series, showcasing some of our favorite crafts from around the web. With school out and long summer days to fill, sharing crafts just seems appropriate. Some of these would make great gifts or be fun ideas for party crafts, so enjoy and keep crafting.

What crafts have you been up to so far this summer?
Earlier this week we shared some fun and easy paper owl crafts, and now we’ve got some more advanced tutorials to satisfy your cravings for adorable owls! With a few hours, and a sewing machine, or a needle and thread you will have two fabulous owl decorations that you can use for a party or keep up year around! We didn’t create these tutorials, but were lucky enough to come across them on the blog Moonstitches. Enjoy!
To make this adorable pennant checkout this fantastic tutorial by Alexandra Rasmussen on Moon Stitches. This project is definitely more advanced, but the results are amazing.
Alexandra also created a tutorial for these cute owls found here. Again, creating these fabric owls are more labor intensive, but they are quite adorable.
What do you think of these adorable little owls? We love them.
