It’s my niece Stephanie’s birthday tomorrow and we had a birthday dinner for her tonight. So cute-a pink party!
Pink hats, pink drink, pink food, pink cake…fun!!!
We were shopping a few months ago and Steph pointed out an owl toy at Cotton On Kids that she liked! I asked her if she’d like me to make her an owl toy for her birthday and she seemed pretty stoked! So I scoured the internet for a cool owl toy pattern and I came across this gorgeous little fella which also doubles as a cushion. Cute!!
Here’s the pattern, it’s super easy, and clearly quite cute…and big!
6 different fabrics
needle and thread, scissors etc
I made a few little changes to the above pattern, I decided to use fusible webbing behind the wings to avoid fraying when I cut the fabric. I ironed it by covering it with baking paper (so it wouldn’t stick to my iron!) Then I cut it out. I was really happy with the result.
I also decided to use felt for the eyes and beak as it doesn’t fray! I used a zigzag stitch on the big part, then hand stitched the pupil.
Here it is!
Who’s eyes are bigger?!
Depending what day it is, you may see this project at any of these fabulous parties!
