Supplies - DIY Felt Owl Plush


Step 1

Notice that the template includes 2 body patterns, 2 heart shapes (which are the wings), 1 small triangle (the beak), 2 circles (blush patterns on both cheeks of the owl), 1 semi-circular pattern (lower body part of the owl) and 1 small heart shape.

Use a pen or pencil to trace the patterns on the selected felts and cut them out nicely using fabric scissors.

Step 2

Take any one of the body cutouts and use a pen or pencil to trace the eyes on the top part of it. Prepare a needle with black thread and simply do a back running stitch to stitch the eyes. Once the stitching is done, draw the needle along with the thread, to the backside of the felt and tie a knot. Cut off extra thread.

Step 3

Place the lower body part (the semi-circular cutout), the blush and beak cutouts on the front body part of the owl. Place the small heart cutout in the middle of the lower body part. Prepare needle with matching thread for each part. Do a simple running or cross-stitch to attach the items with the front body part of the owl plush. Stitch the placed items on the front body piece.

Step 4

Take the 2 heart cutouts and place them on both sides of the owl as if they were the wings. Stitch them with the front body part. I stitched round sequins on the joint parts of the wings and the body, they look so pretty!

Step 5

Take the other body cutout and place it under the front body part. Make sure to match the sides of both body cutouts. Stitch around the sides to join both pieces. A flat blanket stitch is the best when it comes to stitching the outer sides of the plush.

Step 6

Continue the stitching until there is a small opening left. This opening is for stuffing the owl plush. You can use cotton as well as scrap felts for stuffing.

Step 7

Once you’re done stuffing, close the open end to secure it. Tie 1 or 2 tight knots and draw the needle inside the plush and draw the needle out on the back side of the plush. Cut off extra thread.
