This baby owl sewing project is adorable and so easy. Here is a project for the kids (and for yourself too) to make during the school holidays. Hang them anywhere – as a keychain, bag accessory or attach it to a long necklace. Kids can make it for themselves, for mum or a friend. Also, it’s a project that doesn’t require a lot of materials and effort which makes it a lot of fun.
- Gather your materials (scrap fabric, felt, needle, thread, scissors, pencil and toy stuffing)
- Trace an owl shape on 2 pieces of fabric. Use the ‘wrong side’ of the fabric when you do this so that your pencil marks don’t show. Cut out the shapes.
- Sew the 2 pieces of fabric together, again on the wrong side of fabric but leave a tiny opening at the bottom. Turn the fabric over and fill with toy stuffing. Sew to shut the opening.
- Trace and cut 2 circles for eyes and eyelashes and then 2 wings and 2 triangle shapes for the beak.
- Sew the cut-out shapes to form the face of the owl.
- To finish, sew a ribbon or key chain attachment so you can hang your baby owl.
If you like, you can add dried lavender to the toy stuffing to make it smell nice.
