Anyway! the reason i haven’t been posting much is because ive recently got quite a few orders so i’ve been sourcing out some new colour specific fabrics, and i’ve lent my grandmas sewing machine because she has a zipper foot because i’ve been making cushions at last! finished me first one the other day yey!!

How to make the Owls! >>>
needle and thread
Print your pattern and cut out the pieces. You’ll need two of everything except the beak.
Pick out your fabrics. Trace and cut out the front and back of your owl.
The rest of the pattern pieces can be sewn in place using the machine. add ribbon, lace to the wings for a nice effect 🙂 you can use any material you like to try and create one that is suited individually to your style.
Next sew on the eyes. Layer the second layer (white) of the eyes first and then the black middle bits. then sew on the nose, I use zig-zag stitching to create more of an effect.
Pin the front of your owl and the back together with the back side of the fabrics showing. Sew a 1/4 inch seam around your owl leaving an opening at the bottom for turning and stuffing.
Turn your owl right side out. Make sure to use a pencil or some other pointy object to push the ears out. Stuff him and then sew your opening shut.
