First of all, I had an excellent time meeting some of you last night at the Recessionista party. I had some of the sweetest conversations. Thank you. I wanted to take you all home in my pocket……but I settled from some really excellent Recessionista loot. Wow…..such beautiful things.
Anyway, this is the final project of the scarf re-purposing series. (Part I, Part II, and Part III) And I have finally used up my stash. Perfect.
This Wise ‘Ol Owl is made using the leftover scarf from this project.
And he just happens to be my little guy’s new buddy.
Perfect for squeezing!
First, sketch some sort of owl shape and cut out from two layers of your scarf. (Or use fleece, cotton, or any material……this doesn’t have to be from a scarf.)
Then sew along edges with right sides together, leaving the bottom section open.
Then stuff with batting…
And then sew closed using a hand-stitch method from here.
Now, cut out your eye shapes…
And your wing shapes…
And then hand stitch to the front of your owl. (and cut out a beak too…..I forgot that one in the earlier pictures.)
(I pinned the wings to the front to help keep them in place.)
And that’s it……a cuddly new friend for anyone to enjoy.
