mr. owl

today, i'm also guest posting over at Pure & Noble about floral print decor done well in the home! i'd love for you to hop over, check it out & say hi!

This weekend, I had an itch to make one of my sweet owls. There is absolutely zero felt to be found on this island...or this country for that matter...so straight up fabric had to do. 


This owl is actually made completely out of fabric scraps leftover from projects, old blouses & tees...along with buttons & stuffing of course. The stuffing was from the pillows we had on our bed. They were filled so ridiculously full of stuffing that we couldn't sleep for the first few weeks we moved here. I took out literally THREE shopping bags of stuffing and there is still a LOT left in the pillows. Instead of throwing it away, I used some for decorative pillows for the couch & it's perfect for filling these little guys! 


He's very "fall-ish," no? His nose beak is a little crooked, but I think he's cute. 

Feels good to be sewing again! I gave this sweet Mr. Owl to a little girl who lives on the island....her family is also from the states & we love them dearly. 

Have you made any fun projects this week?

love.

  1. I think your owl needs glasses, he looks a bit cross eyed.
