Picture 1-3: I made these owls for Toys for Tots.
As much as I love making items for friends, I never feel like making plush toys, because I’m pretty sure every newborn baby in my circle of friends is getting plenty. I really enjoy making plush toys, but I’d rather make one that’s gonna be used&loved than one that’s gonna be one of the bunch :).
To be honest I’m not completely happy with the result, stuffing is hard and I guess making the same thing 5x is not in my nature.
Picture 4: This is actually the very first sewing project I made on my own! (in August 2011)
Picture 5: I made this Miss Owl for my niece (born 12/30) and altered the pattern a little bit by adding
stuffing and crinkly plastic to the wings, only attaching them partly to the body.
