Prop him on a shelf, sit him on a desk or simply give him to someone to love. He’s sure to be a hoot!
1. Trace owl template – 2: head; 2: body; 1 beak and 4 wings onto fabric and cut out.
2. Also cut out 2 pieces of thin fusible fleece or batting 1/8 inch smaller than the wing.
3. Layer the pattern fabric with right sides facing in and with the fleece on top, then stitch around the edge leaving a 1.5 inch opening.
4. Turn out the wing, using the 12-in-1 Sewing Taxi’s stuffing tool to push out the edges. Iron flat and set aside.
5. Place right sides together and stitch straight edge where owl’s head will meet the body. Open seam and press flat. Repeat for owl’s backside.
6. Pleat ribbon, pin in place on the body of the owl and stitch across.
7. Using the Circle Shape Template trace circles on felt. Cut the largest with Scalloped Shears. Layer and stitch together the eyes, adding a button as the pupil.
8. Cut nose from yellow orange felt and stitch to center of face. Also stitch on the felt eyes.
9. Layer the owl front and back with right sides facing in and with the wings positioned with the raw edges along the edges of the owl body. Note the wings will be on the inside as you stitch the owl closed.
10. Stitch around the owl outline - be sure to back stitch at the beginning and end – leaving a 1 inch to 2 inch opening.
11. Carefully turn out the owl and stuff with polyfil.
12. Stitch closed the opening by hand and adjust batting and enjoy!
