Introducing Hootie the Upcycled Owl

I know I promised a tutorial for this owl , but I decided to try to make it better. If you are interested in the pattern for the other owl, let me know. I can put the pattern pieces on scribd.com.

Now let's talk about Hootie. Hootie is made from some vintage sheet scraps I had, some corduroy, and more fabric scraps for the wings and legs. The pattern pieces are pretty small so it is a perfect way to use fabric scraps that you have around. I used felt only for the eyes, since most people will not have owl safety eyes readily available to them.

Since making one was not enough, I also made a girlier version using a sweater and a vintage pillowcase. I used chenille and satin scraps for the wings. The sweater material was definitely stretchier. I used a sweater that did not felt very well. So the head ended up larger, but it still works.

Here they are enjoying each other's company. They are best of friends already.

I am putting the finishing touches on the pattern and tutorial, but couldn't resist showing you the finished product. This is my 498th post and I wanted the tutorial to be my 500th post. So I am thinking that will be next Monday. It will be a photo tutorial. Then I will post the pattern pieces on scribd.com.

Happy Crafty Tuesday everyone.
