How to make a "Love Owl" Pillow
 
You will Need:
 
small and large plate to make the pattern
about 1/3 yard of fabric for the owl front and back body
scraps of red and pink fabric for wings, eyes, and nose
craft stuffing or fiberfill
basic sewing supplies
 

Whoooo Love's You Baby!

 
Pin It
 
Let's make your owl pattern.

First tape two 8.5" x 11" piece of computer paper together side by side.

Trace a dinner plate.  This will be the base of the owl body.
Now at the top trace a tea-cup saucer plate as shown in the photo.
Using plates from home you can make a pattern for an adorable stuffed owl pillow. Now draw the eyes, nose, feet, and wings.

There, now you have your owl pattern to work with.

Here's how to sew an adorable stuffed owl craft. Now that you have your pattern, you can begin cutting out your pieces.
 
You will need:
2 owl bodies
2 wings
2 feet
2 outer eyes, and 2 center eyes
1 nose
1 heart
Learn to sew a stuffed owl pillow. Once your pieces are cut out, pin them to the pretty side of ONE of the owl body pieces.
Here's an adorable stuffed owl pillow that's easy to sew. Zigzag appliqué the wings, eyes, and feet on first.

Either use a heat bond for the smaller pieces like the eye center, heart, and nose, or zigzag them on next.

Place the owl pretty sides together and sew around the edges. Place your owl bodies pretty sides together and pin around the outer edge.

Stitch around the owl using the pressure foot as your guide. Leave a 4" opening.

(Don't forget to leave your opening.)

 

Hand sew the opening closed on your cute little Valentine owl craft pillow. Trim seams, turn owl pretty side out. Stuff the owl with fiber-fill or stuffing.

Hand stitch the opening closed.

Your adorable cute Love Owl stuffed pillow is finished. Wasn't that easy to sew! Your LOVE Owl is finished!

 

Happy Sewing!
