Owls: So cute!


I can't believe it is September already. I have so much to do this fall. I can't put it off any longer. Today during nap time I put together an owl, finally. I've been wanting to make one for awhile and I think it came out rather well. I followed Toad's Treasures tutorial. I tweaked it a little more to my liking, I stuffed the wings, changed the beak and ended up ripping the feet off because I just didn't really like how they looked with the fabric I chose. Next time I want to make one with the long skinny legs. Those are so cute!

  1. OOOH! It turned out so great! Thanks for the shout out!

    You'll have to let me know when you make the long-legged owl. Its actually alot easier than it looks.
    So good to meet you!

  9. Your owl turned owl cute. I made my girls and nephew each one this summer, which you can see on my blog. They have loved them. I added a pocket to the back of the ones I made. My daughter is actually using hers as a tooth fairly pillow tonight since he tooth can go in the pocket.
