It's no secret that I have been making a lot of owls this year! Naturally, I had to make some Christmas ornaments. Last night, I FINALLY finished all the ones I planned to sew and put on our Christmas gifts!!
I made a simple owl pattern and cut out two pieces of felt for each owl.
Next I cut wings for some owls and hearts for others.
White felt circles and buttons for the eyes.
Once everything was cut out, I got to sewing! I also added a little orange beak on each one.
Here's the heart version...
And here's the wing version...
Next, I used a blanket stitch to stitch around the outside.
Don't forget to sew a ribbon to hang it at the top.
When I got about half way around, I started to stuff the owl.
And here is the first one, all done!!
I made several in red and turquoise for my church sale. Then I made pastel ones for our Christmas gifts.
