An Owl Friend

I have finally gotten on the Owl bandwagon....and I have to say they are really cute. 

 I want to make a couple of owls for Christopher's new room and I was telling Kandi about this project, and she said Harper would love one...so this is what I have come up with...I hope HK loves her new owl friend. (I had to make one for my niece Elli too!)



My first edition is photographed below, you can see I have already started to make changes.


I think Potterybarn Kids is responsible for this latest craze....






Aren't these book ends adorable!  I think I will be making a couple of these for C's room.

Here is a great tutorial by Ashley Johnston on how to make an owl.


 
I have made quite a few changes to this original tutorial, & once I perfect my owl, I will share it with all you sewers.  I am also working on those cute owl bookends.

But for now, I don't think Christopher and Elli mind one bit that these owls are not perfect!


C is holding my second edition (I added the legs)


Look at those smiles!  It is all worth it.


So precious!



I can't wait to see Harper with her new owl friend.  I have been so busy with Christopher's room remodel, but I promise I will get an owl tutorial out soon!

  28. Hi,

    Thank you so much first of all, for sharing these cute pillow animals!!

    Secondly, thank you for linking back to our link party, however... the link does not work as there appears to be a tiny error in the code???!! Probably an easy fix... ;-)

    Have a happy day,
