Who doesn’t love owls? I decided I was going to make some owl softies in the simplest form possible, so I drew a simple shape on a piece of material and cut it out.
I couldn’t make just one, so I made 3. The orange one is my favorite material.
Then I cut out some eyes and beaks. The eyes were traced using the bottom of a cup. The beaks were just cut into a triangle shape.
I sewed the eyes and beaks in place.
I don’t sew a lot so I was a little worried about the circles, but it was actually pretty easy.
They’re starting to look more like owls now.
These buttons from my button stash will be perfect for eyeballs.
I used the same color thread as the buttons to sew them on.
Okay, they’re looking a little crazy, but I still think they’re cute.
Then I placed the right sides together and sewed all around the owl.
I left a 2″ opening in the owl to turn it right side out.
And added the stuffing.
Then I hand stitched the opening closed.
And now I have 3 adorable owl softies that hopefully my grand-daughter will love. The best part is they were totally free by using things I already had. They were so easy, I think I’ll make some more.
