make this super friendly and useful owl to keep you company (and the door open!)
I have been a bit owl obsessed for a while now, and after making dozens of mini owls i thought i would have a go at making a stand up version. The first ones i made i just filled with fluff but after that i filled the top half with poly fibre and the bottom half with sand to give them extra weight.

Added extra buttons on top of wings and as eyes and blanket stitch embroidered around tummy, face and eyes, - which is a therapeutic thing to do on a Sunday morning!!

Hi, and thanks for your fave, yes i have created a how to with photos and the pattern but my computer is playing up a bit so could not load. Watch this space and i will try to get it up and running over the next week or so. Just start looking for that special bit of fabric! I use off cuts of upholstery fabric like you would use to cover chairs, or make curtains or cushion...
