Pattern Details

These owls are one of my favorite projects ever! Have you ever sewn something that makes you so excited that you just want to sew another and another? Well that happened to me with these owls! I experimented, putting rice, beans, or wheat in the bottom of each one to give them a nice heavy feel. Now they can be used for a pincushion, doorstop, bookend, and much more... The finished owls will be AROUND 1/2 the height of the pattern pieces. My basic pattern piece is a little bit less than 10'' tall (so it will fit on a regular sheet of paper). I sewed the three owls above with the basic pattern and you see that they are all different, between 4-6'' tall. The height will depend on how much of the top you fold down to make the beak, and how much you stuff it. The pattern pieces also indicate where to cut to make a pincushion sized owl. Visit my blog post at to see how to adapt the pattern pieces and make any size owl. Fabric and notions: 2 different fabrics (scraps for pincushion size, fat quarters for the basic size) black and white felt for the eyes 2 buttons needle and strong thread for hand sewing (optional, but highly recommended) polyester fiberfill for stuffing the owl rice, wheat, beans, or plastic pellets to give it some weight (place in a zip lock bag) hot glue gun with hot glue

My name is Caroline and I want to inspire you to sew by showing you something beautiful every day. I have four children and a room full of fabric. Sewing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Since I started having kids most of my sewing is for them and our home. For years now my browser's bookmark files have been filling up with project ideas that I need to try. It's helpful because people often ask me if I know how they can make such-and-such, and I tell them I'll just go home and email you the link to a tutorial. Well, now I get to share those tutorials with anyone who will look (or sign up for my newsletter). If you follow along with us on She Sews! the SewCanShe blog, we'll explore new tricks and techniques and show off our work every Saturday in our linky party.
