Looking Through Rose Colored Glasses

It's my day, along with other fabulous and creative people, to share our 
Sew It - Show It Challenge project for the "Rose Colored Glasses" blog hop. 

What was the challenge?
Your sewn project must have one or more of the following:

Rose/pink fabric
Positive Words

My steampunk owl sees everything positive and beautiful through his rose colored glasses. He's very much into quilting, which is why he's surrounded himself with a few perfect tools for a sewing room.

My "Rose Colored Glasses" tote bag.

It measures about 18" x 22"...nice size for carrying my projects to sew with friends.

The fabrics are Benartex's Whisper Weave by Nancy Halvorsen. My friends and I found the fabric on sale during a big event at Sew Yeah Quilting. It was such a fun and costly visit for us!

My project was a slight change-up from a bag I made for a Benartex ambassador challenge 
using their logo. He does have a rose colored hat and wings!

Who else is blog hopping this week?
