Felt Owl How-To


We've been having fun with felt.
Make your own felt owls by following these simple steps:
Choose your colours from your felt stash.


Print out the template below:


Cut out 2 eyes, 2 wings, 1 nose and 2 body shapes in the colours of your choice...this is what you will have:


Use a blanket stitch to sew the various pieces onto the front of your owl...Don't forget your buttons!
We sewed 2 Incomparable buttons to enhance the owl's 'googly' eyes and a heart button for his tail!


Blanket stitch the 2 body pieces together and leave a large enough gap to fit your filling into...


Once he is filled to your liking, finish up your stitching...


Only one thing left to do....make him a friend...

  3. Can you tell me how tall the owl is? I think mine printed out too big.
