The above picture is the blanket hanging up so you could see the whole thing. I used Cricut Craft Room and the Hoot and Hollar cartridge for the owl applique piece on the blanket. I sized it as large as I could and then I adhered Heat n bond to the back of the fabric. Then I placed it on my mat,fabric side down. I used the multi cut function and had it cut 3 times. Then I ironed it on the blanket and used an applique stitch to go around it.
Here is a close up of the face. I used a scallop circle from nestabilities to do the eyes and the buttons are Stampin' Up. The nose I cut free hand.
