Yes, I’m attempting to make a stuffed animal. A stuffed owl to be exact. I got the pattern here. To Emily Ashby, thank you for such a cute pattern and I’ll post my owl when I get it finished. So here are the fabric pieces, just ready to be sewn together and stuffed…
Looking like a Picasso at the moment.
So I finished the owl and here is how it went.
First I hand sewed the eyes and ‘irises’ on to the body part. This was just to practice hand sewing because I’m not that great at it. It was also a distraction from whatever football game was on TV at the time. I really did enjoy the task, even though it was time consuming and tedious. Finally, I got my mom’s sewing machine this morning and I was able to sew on the beak, wings, and not-so-talony talons. So here is a picture of pre-stuffing:
So then I stuffed the heart and filling in and sewed her up!
She’s waiting to be snuggled!
