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.

The finished size of this little owl is about 8 inches wide by 9 inches high.

How to Make a Scrappy Fall Owl Pillow

Use the pattern and cut out all of the owl pieces. Fabric for the 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.
