I wanted to make an owl stuffie for my sis-in-law's baby shower. But I looked all over blog land and couldn't find an owl pattern that I liked. So I decided...why not draw up my own pattern? And I love how it turned out.
It has a long strip of fabric between the front and back so that it has dimension . . . you can kinda see that in the pic below. I hadn't hand sewn the opening closed yet, but you get the idea. I love all the different textures of fabric that I found in my stash - suede, corduroy, fuzzy, and felt.
