Scrappy Patchwork Owl by Lizzy

So, after my scrappy trip along quilt I’ve made some assorted cushions but still had a couple of the panels left over.

I needed to make a gift for our newest granddaughter Chloe for her 1st birthday shortly. I had in mind a stuffed toy, owls are all the rage right now so this chap took shape!

Here’s a couple of pointy ears, pinned to the inside ready for sewing together.
My panels were slightly oblong so I just sewed up 3 sides, slanting the top two corners

Once sewn I turned the body inside out, pressing lightly including a turn up around base

Stuffed lightly then machine stitched the base together

Then the features were added to make him come alive
