|Personally I think this little owl I made for my friend's baby's first birthday might be my favorite! She is just so cute! (The baby, and the owl of course!)|
Before I show you how I made my little owl friend, I want to give credit to where credit is due. I got my idea for this little guy from two fantastic owls tutorials....I have made a few changes, and that is what I am going to show you today!

|My Cotton Creations|
Step 1: I used My Cotton Creations pattern. If you follow her link, she has a PDF file that you can download for free. The pattern is really small, so I took it into my local copy store, and had them blow it up 4 times its original size. The only thing her pattern is missing is the legs. (More on that later!)
Step 2: Cut out your shapes. The four identical shapes on the left side of the picture are the legs. I don't have a pattern for these legs. I like my legs long, so I made the leg section approx. 6" long, with a rounded head. I originally made a three-toed foot with leg but velvet slips around, I found I was more successful if I sewed the toes than cut off the extra material...I have a few pictures later on in the tutorial.
Step 3: Sew on your parts...(okay that sounded a little wierd!)
