I created something that reminded me of a meme.
Here’s what I’d do differently next time:
- Use felt for the beak and maybe the eyes, as well as for accent pieces of the owl.
- Cut out a bigger pattern! I forgot about seam allowances (I haven’t sewed in a while, okay?!) so it ended up becoming smaller than I intended. Oops.
- Make sure to sew the individual pieces of a “side” first before trying to sew the front and back pieces together! That’s why there’s a fuzzy situation going on, on the right of the owl.
- Add wings! I initially cut out wings, but then I forgot to add them. Oops No. 2!
I used some scrap fabric I found at the reuse store and tiny bits of my “good” fabric as well as buttons I already had laying around, and I got some practice in, so it was definitely a learning experience!
Here’s my cat pretending to cuddle it for the photo.
She later kicked it away while taking a nap.
