Homemade Owls

Owls are everywhere! I'm sure you've all seen those cute owl pillows and toys. I've been wanting to make some for awhile now. There is this great website called DIY Dish. If you haven't heard of it they have some great and easy craft ideas. You really should check it out.
About a month or so ago they did a episode on how to make Owl Pin Cushions. Plus they have a free pattern available on their website.
The pattern online is for the small owl with the dangle legs. I made that one first and wasn't sure if I liked the legs. With the other two I meant to draw some different legs but never got around to it.
The best thing about this project is I used up some of my fabric scraps.
They also share a great tip on how to sew the legs.
For the bigger Owl I had my husband enlarge the pattern for me. You really could make it any size you'd like. My daughter loves to play with these owl pillows. But you could also use the pattern and make a paper banner or use them for pin cushions. The possibilities are endless. These would also make great stocking stuffers or gifts for the holidays.
