EASY Free Owl Pattern and Tutorial

{Trey's EASY Owl}
Hang onto your hats, this is the easiest (love you beginners!), fastest, and cutest free owl epattern and tutorial around!  They make great owl pillows or toys for babies! (Super for kids because there are no choking hazards!)  Looking for a great baby shower gift or owl decor?  Yep! Here you go!

Side Bar...Trey= My sweet nephew with flaming red hair. (TreyandLucy)






But before I share this sweet pattern/tutorial with you, I have to tell you where my inspiration came from...


How cute are these owls from Pottery Barn Kids? I took one look and knew that I would never pay $20-30 for one, but I just might be up for the challenge of creating my own!

My sister Stephanie got the 1st one hot off the machine...

Then I had to make my niece Lucy one...you may recall this wild owl!


Isn't she sweet?  How would it be to have legs like that! (If you like it, here's my FREE Ms. Lucy Long Legs pattern and tutorial!)

And now, for the owl you've been waiting for!

{Mini-Book Option}
If you like your legs a little shorter you'll love Trey's owl.

My free pattern and tutorial is posted below...but if you'd like it in booklet form--here you go!


Save the time and hastle of having to copy and paste the directions from my blog...get your own little book!  Its a 6 page step by step color picture tutorial that includes even more pictures and tips for making this cute plushie! You just download, print, cut, staple, and love it forever.  For more info about it you can click here.

Like I said, the epattern & tutorial are posted for free below, but you can download your very own booklet for only $2.50 (limited time only) and its well worth the time!

While thinking of things to make for my friend's three year old daughter for her birthday, I came across this tutorial. SOOOO CUTE!!! I made a large stuffed owl, then I made a smaller (50%) version but didn't stuff it. Instead I sewed it onto a shirt with the wings and feet still free to move. *loves* Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Kathleen said...

Thank you! I made one with stuffing in the top and beans on the bottom, intending to use it as a bookend. My 2-year-old daughter cries when I try to put it on the shelf though. :) Next I'm making one for my second daughter, due in May.

foodmathquilts said...

Thanks for a great tutorial!
I ended up using your pattern as inspiration, and traced a bigger body but kept the feet and eyes.

He's so cute, I'm tempted to keep him, but I'm sure he will be perfect for my nephew's 1st birthday instead

Kelly said...

how many stragglers do you get making your owl months later after you've posted the pattern. WHICH I didn't do a post about on my blog but I did do it last night and I LOVE IT! instead of just poly fill I used some poly beads to give it some weight and I plan on making another one for two bookends for my friends nursery...


thanks again, and made my raining good friday enjoyable! God Bless.

Shawn-Shine said...

Thank you for the tute! The Sass E Sowers met last night to make owls. Here is Francine in the backyard, and Dottie at home in her bedroom :)

I'm addicted to your simple owl pattern... I have linked you in my own blog. I am planning to venture out and design my own animal patterns. Thank you for the free share!

Shelly said...

A friend is having a baby and is planning an owl themed nursery. I saw some cute stuffed owls online, but thought I could probably make one if I had a pattern, so I googled it and found your website. Thank you! I will be making her the owl, owl beanie and the diaper clutch! Your tutorials make them look easy yet your finished products look amazing. I hope I can accomplish the same :)

Christine said...

I just wanted to let you know how much I love your pattern. This is the first thing I've sewn except for quilts, and your pattern was so easy to follow. Then I went and looked at other patterns and was even even more amazed at yours. Than you so much! And my daughter loves her new owl friend!

Joyce said...

I am stuffing him right now. So cute. Thanks so much.

Elina Kauppinen said...

I've seen these at Christmas Bazaars and they fill them with flax seed, rice or peas so you can put them in the microwave, heat them for 2 minutes and put them on sore muscles My family loves them.
