    Love these!!! I am an owl person and love everything owls! :-) I would assume that you would use two pieces of one color and 1 of the other to make an owl. gather the bottom after you sew the 3 pieces and stuff it. I am trying to make one without instructions…..

    I made of these just now…it was easy to do…like Debbie said…cut 3 pieces, 2 of one fabric and 1 of another, stuff and gather the bottom, I glued mine to a washer so it will stand up :) He is soo cute and a great use for scraps!
    Here is my first attempt! There will be a ton of these in my workshop! lol!

    the fringe is made of off white wool, when you sew he pattern pieces together stuff the point with a little fiberfill, sew a line of atitches at the fold and stuff using crushed walnut shells or rice, hope this helps
