Tag Archives: owls

It seems to me that we have been very busy, and not quite sure with what, but I have had a little time to do some fun sewing.

Owls have been  my projects. I used a free pattern from the internet, i just can’t remember the site, plus I’ve made a few of my own little pattern pieces.

They’re easy and fun to do.

I’ve used fabric for the body and felt pieces for other body parts.

My first two owls were hug owls for two little girls that lost their mom to luekemia over the summer.  I just wanted them to smile a little bit when they saw them.2 owlsThese are the pattern pieces that I used.

20150928_151333I’ve used different print fabrics, Day of the Dead, Halloween and various of pinks and other colors for everyday decorations.

Well, it’s another owl. My daughter asked me to make a white owl for a friend.  This is how I started.
