This wise old owl will take over the night shift for you. Use him as a pillow or use him as a toy or use him as a bit of both. He will make an excellent gift for any child, big or small!
Step one: Enlarge your owl design 400% and trace onto the white fabric using your favourite method. I love the frixion markers - when you iron the fabric the ink disappears! Make sure there is at least an inch clear around all sides of the design.
Step two: Stitch along the lines using backstitch. I used all 6 strands of the floss for a chunky look.
Step four: Trim the fabric back to make a half inch seam. Clip any tight corners.
Step five: Turn the owl out the right way through the opening and stuff the toy fill inside.
Step six: Hand stitch the opening closed.
