Owlie, My Newest Plush.
I've been really lazy in taking step by step photos of my projects as I do them, so I'll just give you the gist of it.
First, I cut the pattern of the owl, kinda roundy with ears thing.
I wanted her big so the sewing would be easier, and it was good that way because my eye-balling it method wasn't under much scrutiny.
Then, I cut out felt eyes, eyelashes, beak, and wings.
I hand sewed the felt to the fabric of Owlie's body.
Then i turned it all inside out, pinned it, and took out my sewing machine and did the outline of Owlies body.
I then left a little bit of space underneath, turned her inside out, and stuffed her. She's a chubby little girl, she took up almost the whole bag of stuffing whereas my Octopus didn't!
I hand sewed the bottom opening and then sewed a line of buttons over it, so she had a button base.
Isn't she the cutest? And she fits right at home with my owl collection (pics to come!)
**Note, I have also been lazy in using my camera, these are cell phone pics, so the colors aren't as good as they could be!
Till next time my friends!
