Scrappy Owl

I made this cute owl the other day, when I didn't have as much experience with my sewing machine. I'm still making sewing mistakes but its so fun I don't even care!
The original description was in Crafts-N-Things magazine in the fall.
I refused to use a pattern, but as I was working on it I decided I needed some help, so I looked in my fall issue of Crafts-N-Things and found they had an online tutorial. Its not very well explained, but the pictures are great. So using that and the magazine description I was able to make it happen.

Of course, you can see by his feet and wings that I should have at least drawn the shapes before I started butting, lol.

Here is the tutorial.

I hope you get a chance to be creative today!!
