Stuffed OwlI am trying to get in more sewing practice lately and I’ve found sewing toys a good way to practice some skills and since they are so small, I can finish them quickly. Recently, I’ve run across patterns written by Retro Mama that are really quick and the instructions are very clear and easy to follow.

This cute owl is Stewart from the Owl Softie pattern.
Stuffed Owl
What You’ll Need:

  • Pattern from Retro Mama
  • Cotton fabric for wings and back
  • Corduroy or linen for front
  • White, black, yellow, orange felt (preferably wool or wool blend)
  • Stuffing
  • Wonder under fusible interfacing

You could easily use scraps for all of the fabric since the amounts needed are so small.

I sewed most of the pieces using my sewing machine and hand sewed the felt pieces of the face and feet. I also left the bottom open to fill the owl instead of the side like the pattern calls for just because I didn’t want the sides to have different shapes and it would be less noticeable at the bottom when I sewed it up.

All in all, a pretty quick and easy to follow pattern. I think it took me about 2 hours to finish. Since I am a beginner sewer, I would reccommend it for all sewing levels.
