Stuffed Owl

I love this little owl! It's the first stuffed animal I've made and it wasn't hard either. My baby girl loves owls so I searched for a tutorial and found the cutest one at Mile High Mom. I used a pink minky dot fabric on the back for the cuddle-factor, and all the fabric on the front matches the ruffled quilt I'm making her for Christmas (besides the black on the eyes - that's felt). 

I have to mention the tutorial I found and used for closing the seam. It was just what I needed and it worked great! I was amazed. Go to Quilt Taffy to see how to finish off a stuffed animal with an invisible closing seam!

I don't know how I'm going to hold off another week before giving this to my baby. I showed her brother and he said, "Wow! Can I see my stuffed Batman"? Mind you, there is no stuffed Batman but apparently there's gonna have to be now! I will be sharing that tutorial as well as their coordinating twin quilts (since they share a room) in the near future.
