Birthday came early....

My birthday which isn't for another few weeks came early last Thursday in the form of a new sewing machine!! This is something I had only dreamed of until recently, a computerised/digital machine that is easy to use!! Much of my time over the past few days has been dedicated to learning how to use my new machine and hopefully some new style owls will be produced shortly...

Currently I have lots of ideas but have had no time to put them into action so keep your eyes out for new products appearing shortly...

Currently there is a little bit of a backlog on custom orders but there are plenty of items ready made if anyone is interested just let me know what you are after... I have a few bibs, facewashers, burp cloths and heatpacks and owls ready made and available to be posted as soon as payments clear.

Just for mums items launched...

Hi All so this is my first real post on here, thought it was about time that I got started so I could keep you all up to date properly with what is going on at Owls n' Stuff headquarters.

Things have been a little quiet around here for the past year because of our little Owllet William and all his issues. He has just turned 1yo (where did that time go?) so I am trying to get back into the swing of things.
