craft day happiness; stuffed owl friend

Happy craft day! Today we are going to make a little friend. He is round, colorful, sustainable, eco- minded, super cute to look at, and is a great listener and cuddler! As you have guessed I am talking about the newest craft project I had so much fun making; the stuffed owl! It all started one night after work when I had the urge to just MAKE SOMETHING. I started with a pencil and paper.. and then my process started.. see below!:)

First I quickly sketched something that I could easily make....

then I broke it down into shapes

the fun part was gathering my scraps of fabric that I thought would look fun together

I then cut the shapes out of the scraps

once the body was sewn I stuff it with all the little scraps until nice and plump

I then whip stitched the opening closed and hand stitched the wings, tummy, and face on.
