Make this adorable Scrappy Fall Owl Pillow in about 30-minutes!
This pillow is easy to make using scrap fabric you have on hand and a couple of silk gerbera daisies from the dollar store.
I used brown and patterned scrap fabric that I had in my craft bin but if you don’t have any, you could raid your closets for an old button up shirt or even grab one from the thrift store.
Get the free pattern below. The finished size of this little owl is about 8-inches wide by 9-inches high.
How to Make a Scrappy Fall Owl Pillow
- A sewing machine (or your could sew by hand)
- Matching thread
- Stick pins
- An iron and ironing board
- Felt for the beak
- 2 faux Gerbera daisies for eyes
- Poly-Fil stuffing
- Hot glue gun
- A print out of the Free Scrappy Owl Pattern
First download the Free Scrappy Owl Pattern here and cut out the pattern pieces needed. Fabric for the owl body and belly. Felt for the beak.
Now make small slits (about 1/4-inch) all the way around the outer edge of the fabric for the belly, then iron over the edges about 1/4 inch. This will give you a finished edge.
Sew the belly to the front of the owl fabric first.
Now pin the front and back body pieces together, wrong sides out. Sew together using a 1/4 seam allowance. Make sure to leave at least a 3-inch opening to stuff.
Turn the body of the owl right side out and stuff with poly-fil stuffing. Then turn the edges of the opening inward and sew closed.
Last, hot glue the daisy eyes and felt beak on.
