Owl Pillows

It was meant to be a fox. But somehow it turned into an owl. That’s okay, I like owls. So does Lola. I have been whipping out owl pillows all week. I put some in the shop, I made one for Lola to keep her company on our recent camping trip, and I am trying to figure out the best way to send one to my mom (look away, mom!) for her birthday.

They’re about 18 – 19” tall. I just freehanded the pattern. They are made of a combination of wool, felt, sheepskin fabric, gingham, flannel, and vintage doilies. They have tagua nut buttons as noses and regular buttons for eyes. Lola insisted on adding a strawberry for a belly button to her owl.

I love my owls. When they’re sitting all huddled together in the big chair, I find it hard to part with them. And it’s a excellent stash buster, too!

Happy Friday, everyone. Hope your weekend is a wonderful one. Whoo hoo!

  1. I agree with CraftyHope, they are very cute! The one wearing the heart doily would be my favourite.

    Enjoy the weekend. :)

  2. Oh my goodness.. these are so sweet!

  3. What a great use of your fabric stash - these guys are adorable! Enjoy your weekend up North and I look forward to seeing some pics.

  4. Adorable! My favorite is the one with the heart-shaped doily.
