Snuggly Owl for Sewing Republic



I have created another project for Bernina’s Sewing Republic.  
(Remember the Autumn Door Hanger from this post?)
But this time, a snuggly little owl pillow…….

……that can also be loved on as a little stuffed friend too!  
So nice and squeeze-able.  
Who knows, you may be just like me and still need to whip up a few more gifts for Christmas.  
Did I catch you procrastinating?
If so, give this little fleece/felt/minky friend a try………
Click here for my full Snuggly Owl tutorial (including free pattern pieces) over on Sewing Republic. 

**The pattern pieces are found at the very end of the PDF file.

Let me know how it turns out.

    I made this for my niece and she loves it. I cut out fabric letters and sewed them on the back of the owl so it was personalized. It turned out great. Thanks so much for sharing this tutorial.

  3. Sharla says:

    I made your owl and your pattern was awesome! I love the way it turned out, thanks!

  4. Marjorie says:

    I just made these for my girls for Christmas. Such a great tutorial!! Here's the link to our owls ;)

    Thank you so much for putting this together! I've been wanting to make an owl pillow for quite some time now and your tutorial was perfect for what I wanted!

    My sister just emailed me this link last night. I loved it! I made three today for my three boys (10,8,6 yr old). I used some of my grandpas old flannel shirts, and I let them tell me what fabric they wanted where. I utilized the chest pocket from the shirt as the bodice piece, so they could put their lost teeth or notes in the pocket. They spent the rest of the night writing eachother notes and putting them in eachother's pockets, which was really sweet and a nice break from fighting and wrestling.

    I love it. I will have to keep that one on my list of go-to projects!

  7. amybradmartin says:

    I can't wait till my new sewing machine comes so I can make one of these for my little girls bed. Thank you for the pattern!

  8. Genevieve says:

    super cute owl! and i just wanted to let you know that i made a marker roll up based on your crayon roll up tutorial and posted about it linking back to your site here-


  9. TortueOrange says:

    I made four owls yesterday night. They were really fun and quick to do. Thank you so much for the pattern!

  10. Jen V says:

    So adorable! I am going to make 1 for each of my girls!!

    Any ideas for a boy?? My son is 8 so an owl seems a bit babyish for him…

    Thanks for the inspiration!!

  11. Ashley says:

    I'm so glad this pattern will be useful….and some of you have already made it! WOw!!!

    As for there not being a pattern piece for the center strip of the owl…….at the beginning of the PDF instructions, there is a list of what needs to be cut out and how many of each. There it says to cut a center strip that is 46 x 3.5 inches. Since it was just a basic rectangle shape, I didn't include a pattern piece. Good luck!

    And Robyn, that fabric is fantastic! And even all the colors I have been using. Thanks for the link! :)

  12. Ashley says:

    This is fantastic! My son's first grade teacher is pregnant and just today we were talking about how she's been scouring etsy for owls for the nursery – I'm totally making her one. Thanks!

  13. Anonymous says:

    I'm with B Crock. Is there a pattern for the middle strip? I have all the other pieces cut out. Thanks!

  14. missy says:

    this is so super adorably sweet and cute, WHY did you have to post it the week before Christmas, lol?? Now I want to make these for my dds but I have too much going on. Thank you so very much for the pattern and one of my fave blogs … Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! We'll be making owls at our house in 2011!!

  15. B Crock says:

    I have most of the pattern piece but what pattern piece do I use for the middle strip? I'm fairly new to sewing and am not nearly crafty enough to figure it out on my own. :)

  16. Vanessa says:

    Thanks for the super cute owl! Already made one and I love it!

  17. Ronna says:

    Thank you for this super cute tutorial. Love it and cant wait to make it.

  18. Rachel says:

    I'm SO excited about this post!! I've seen a few pictures of these owl stuffed animals and wanted to make one so badly, but there was never a pattern available. I'm not good enough to wing it yet, so I'm stoked!! Thank you!!

  19. toots2u says:

    great tutorial!! super cute project that i look forward to making after Christmas! Thanks so much!

  20. Robyn says:

    Have you seen this fabric?

    I just used it for a project and was thinking it would go perfectly in that bedroom you've so brilliantly put together!

  21. Alison says:

    What a cute owl pillow! Great job as always. :)

  22. Leanne says:

    that is so cute on your little girl bed. thanks!

  23. hellomabel21 says:

    I would really love this pattern but can't download it. Could you put it on your site for all? Or offer another solution?

  24. lorchick @ ON{thelaundry}LINE says:

    I LOVE IT. I will come to your house and steal it. Just kidding, I can barely get out the door to go to the grocery store right now. But I will think wistfully about stealing it…

  25. April says:

    I can't see anything on the site… i really want this pattern! :(

  26. Britney says:

    love it! went to download the pdf but nothing came up. help!

  27. Christy says:

    Oh my GOODness, I love this! I want to have a kid just so I can make it! ;)

  28. Rachel says:

    how cute is that?! it's so adorable!!

  29. momsmess says:

    My pdf only had 14 pgs. no pattern pieces, and now when I try to go back to the site to try again, it's not there at all. :(

  30. MommyInLove says:

    i cant tell you how perfect this is. my oldest daughter LOVES owls, and my youngest, penguins… i might adapt this and attempt a penguin. I'll post pictures if i do! Thanks for all the great tutes!

  31. Janna says:

    Just reloaded and I got the pattern pieces :)
    Thanks so much!
    I love it.

  32. Cara says:

    Hmmm, I still don't see the pattern pieces in the PDF, but I'll try back later today :0)

  33. Ashley says:

    Yes, the pattern pieces should now be added to the last few pages of the PDF. They fixed that right away…..sorry about that!

    And if the PDF is freezing up, try re-loading……maybe because it's a big file??

    Good luck and enjoy!


  34. Kim's Treasures says:

    He is the cutest ever!!! I'm going to make one for my friend's daughter's baby shower in blues and browns! Thank you so much for sharing!

  35. Tiffany says:

    Ok now I see the pattern pieces there, but every time I go to print it locks up my computer and then I get an error message. Anyone else having issues with this?

  36. Laree says:

    I downloaded the pdf – the pattern pieces are pages 14-16.

    This is so stinkin adorable! I'm not big into owls, but this one is worth it!

  37. craftywife says:

    That is too cute!

  38. Brenbren says:

    I would love to make one myself. Where do I find the pattern pieces?

  39. Tiffany says:

    Ok this is absolutely adorable!! And exactly what little miss needs in her owl room. Running out to get supplies right now..let's see..9 days till Christmas, I can abandon the rest of my to-do list right? Haha. Thanks for the tutorial, I love it!!

  40. Annie says:

    I have to make this! Keep owl ideas rolling, I'm gearing up to make an owl themed room for my little lady who adores them. Thanks!

  41. Anonymous says:

    I couldn't find the pattern pieces. This is going to look adorable with my daughter's room and her new big girl bed!

  42. Ashley says:

    Hmmmm…..I thought they were over there. I will check it out!

  43. Maz says:

    Hi Ashley,

    I've downloaded the pdf but there's no pattern pieces on it. Are they somewhere on the Sewing Republic website (or did I just miss something).

  44. kirsty says:

    Very cute! And I have to say I love those quilt covers, every time you post a pic of them they make me happy to look at.

  45. Rebekah says:

    LOVE it!
