A while ago I saw the cutest little stuffed owl on Make It and Love It She had created a tutorial with the pattern and everything which can be found HERE This is her owl:
I put in on my list of things to do and I finally got around to making some. My cousin was having a baby shower for her twins and I thought it these cute owls would be a fun gift rather than getting her clothes - not to mention, they were quite a bit cheaper than buying two outfits.
I decided to make her two owls (one for the boy and one for the girl) and to make one for my daughter at the same time. I bought a huge bag of stuffing for $9 at Walmart and used extra fabric my mom had lying around. I did do one thing differently from her pattern. I didn't sew the 3 inch strip of fabric between the front and back pieces. I did this because I wanted them to be more pillow like. Here are the owls I made.
These are the two owls I made for Jessica's twins:
When I finished the owls, I decided that I wanted to have some little baby owls for my daughter's room too, so I made up a smaller pattern and sewed 4 baby owls. Here are all of the owls I made for her room:
I just couldn't resist and HAD to make a little "branch" pillow for the owls too :)
I love them! The pattern is really easy to follow. I have received several emails from people wanting the small owl pattern so HERE it is!
