I was looking at Pottery Barn the other day and I saw these cute owl bookends! My youngest daughter has an owl room and I thought they would be adorable in there. I figured I could make my own version from the fabric I already had and save my $30.00.
I first made a pattern for the owls, then cut out the fabric I needed for them. I also used felt for the eyes and some scrap flannel I had for the wings.
I hand embroidered everything in place before I sewed then together.
Once they were put together I stuffed them and put rice at the bottom to weigh them down.
I think they are pretty cute for wanna be's!
