DIY plush owl

diy-owl-crafts

For a photo shoot of our owl couple baby shower decor, I recently made a few plush owls… perfect for birthday party favors or as gifts for the little one that is soon to arrive. And the best part, you could even make these as a “no sew” project! Mine are sewn, but I’m just saying… you don’t have to. A little fabric glue and you’re in!

So here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 coordinating fabrics (owl body and wings)
  • coordinating felt (eyes and nose)
  • batting
  • owl body template (to ensure that both sides are equal, print the template out and trace it side by side on wax paper)

And here are the super easy steps:

  1. Cut out the owl body from one fabric and the wings (just the bottom corners of your owl body) from a coordinating fabric. Sew the wings to the body.
  2. Cut out the eyes from coordinating felt; we did two sizes and layered the circles. Sew the eyes in place.
  3. Cut out a diamond shape nose from felt. Sew the nose in place.
  4. Place the front and back of the owl facing each other. Sew the owl body together (inside out) with a 1/4″ seam all the way around, leaving the bottom open.
  5. Turn your owl right side out. You may need to use a pencil to poke the ears out.
  6. Stuff the owl with batting and close the bottom of the owl with a needle and thread… or fabric glue. {wink}

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!
