This adorable little guy is quick and pretty darn easy to make. Whip one up for yourself in a little over an hour. Or, you can spend the day and make a whole "parliment" of owls.
You will need:
- sewing machine
- polyester fiberfill for stuffing
- fabric for front and back of body
- fabric for wings, eyes, feet and beak
- fabric for eye background
- paper bag or other material to cut out pattern
- pencil or pen
- wooden spoon to push stuffing in the tight places
Let's get started!
Draw and cut a half an owl shape on a folded brown paper bag.
(size depends on your bag or your preference)
Unfold and trace owl shape
on another brown paper bag,
as you will need one for the front and back of owl.
Trace two circles for the eyes.
I used a little tin of Nivea cream.
Trace two slightly smaller, as well.
As you can see in the image below,
because of the design of my fabric,
I was able to simply use these circles.
Cut out a small beak out of desired fabric.
