How cool is this little guy?
At first I was thinking, child’s pillow? But no. This little owl is actually useful and non-toxic. This Sleepy owl (this one is called mellow yellow), available at Pouch’s Shop at Etsy is made with vintage fabric, and filled with non-allergenic stuffing and chemical-free French Lavender. Lavender is a nice sleep aid so having this fellow near your bed will be relaxing. Pouch offers up an idea of hanging him in your closet to repel moths. That’s what I’d like him for. I currently use cedar blocks, but I drip lavender essential oil on the blocks as well. I’d hate to hide him away, but it would be a nice treat every time I open the closet.
More than anything, I think this represents a great way to reuse items in your home. You can change the colors up and use some of your fabric scraps to create really adorable items. Items that serve a new purpose. Or, if your short on time these Pouch owls are ready and waiting.
