I am so giddy about the opportunity to guest post on my biggest blog crush: The 36th Avenue.
Thank you so much Desirée! 🙂
Today I am sharing my Secret Love Message Owl tutorial with you!
If you have little ones, they will absolutely love finding a special
secret message from you on Valentine’s day in this stuffed owl’s pocket.
I’m so stoked to get started!
* Fabric for body, wings, beak, pocket and heart pattern pieces
* Dark and white piece of wool felt for outer and inner eye pattern pieces
* 1 Piece of ribbon
* Fabric marker
*Needle & Thread
* 2 page owl pattern- You can print it off HERE
First, print off the 2 page owl pattern and cut out the pieces:
Pin the pattern pieces to each of your 2 layers of fabric and cut out.
Pin the wings, beak, eyes and ribbon onto your owl body and sew.
Sew the inner eye piece onto your owl.
I know you are so excited for this next part of the owl making process: making your little hidden heart note! 🙂
Trace your heart pattern onto 2 pieces of fabric with your fabric marker and cut them out.
Write, embroider or stencil your sweet little message onto the front of the heart.
Sandwich the end of the ribbon between the 2 heart pieces wrong sides together and sew all the way around the heart, leaving a 2 inch gap on the side.
Stuff with Poly Fil and sew shut.
To make the pocket to hide your heart love note…
Trace the pocket pattern with your fabric marker onto your 2 pieces of fabric right sides together.
Sew all the way around the edge of the 2 pocket pieces leaving a 2 inch gap.
Turn the pocket right side out and press.
Pin to the front of the owl body and sew all the way around leaving the top open so you can slip your heart inside.
Take the other owl body piece and pin onto the front body piece right side down.
Sew around the edge with about a 1/4 inch seam allowance, leaving a large gap at the bottom.
Turn your owl right side out and press.
Stuff your owl nice and plump with poly Fil.
Stitch the bottom gap shut…
And you are FINISHED!!
You can stuff your heart message inside the pocket to surprise your loved one on Valentine’s day!
Thank you so much for having me today! Have a Happy Valentine’s day! 🙂
