Owl Stuffies Tutorial

Owl Stuffies Tutorial
Ever since I made my son’s Halloween costume I’ve been having a lot of fun sketching and playing with the idea of making an owl stuffie. So when my mom commissioned me to make a stuffed animal as a present for a friend’s new baby I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

The fabric that I choose for my main color came from an old pair of pants and was a heavier weight than the cotton quilting fabrics that I picked for my belly and tail colors. The next step is to join the belly wings and face pieces to make the front of the owl. Afterwards you can trim the excess wing to even up the seam.

In past years, we’ve always made this spider that we found on Family Fun’s website a couple years ago. A little tacky? Yes, but I didn’t mind because this is one of the things my kids look forward to EVERY year. “Mom, when are we going to make the garbage bag spider???” Felt Owl Ornaments I haven’t made that much this Christmas. I might make a few last minute gifts, but I feel I have to get most of the shopping out of the way first... especially the online stuff that needs to be shipped.

Inspired by the good old-fashioned pencil case, I thought it would be fun to sew a lined, zippered pouch that you can use for pencils, makeup, electronics or anything else you need to organize and tuck away. The great thing about this bag is that once you understand the basic construction, you can easily make it any size you like.

You can use oilcloth for the lining to create a waterproof makeup bag, or try stitching a label to the outside to indicate what’s hiding inside.

Funky Fabric Birds / Sewing and Quilting These fun, chubby stuffed birds in Autumn colors will be a sweet addition to my fall décor this year.

The t-shirts were all thrifted and reclaimed and salvaged from our own outgrown boxes of clothing, of course. When I started collecting them, I admit, I had no idea what I intended to do with them.
