Bethany's Etsy Mini Challenge

Bethany's challenge was to take inspiration from an item you found on Etsy! Etsy is a fantastic site with countless cool vintage and handmade items to choose from. It was really fun browsing!

I chose this kitchy felt calendar wall hanging from 1970 for my inspiration. I was not thrilled by the colors, but I liked the shape of the owls on the piece. I used them as inspiration for the paper piecing on my layout.

Here is my layout. As I was cutting this little guy out, I had so much fun! I realized I just said last month I wasn't crazy about cute paper pieced items, too! I may be a convert!
