Whoooo doesn't love owls these days? They are rapidly becoming a favorite in our house.
Since we are obviously accessorizing with owls, I decided why not make some owl barrettes.
First, dig through your button jar to find some owl eyes. I found some flower shaped buttons, I think they gave my owl a day of the dead feel.
Then dig through your felt and start cutting out the pieces of owl.
Below is the template I used.
I only sewed through one piece of owl body. My grandma once said the back should always look as good as the front. She would not approve of my back.
I like to add a second piece of felt, to hide the messy stitches on the back of my owl. I attach it by hand sewing around the body of the owl. I like to leave part of the bottom unsewn...you'll see why in a second.
Attach a barrette to the back with a few stitches.
And there you have it, an owl barrette.
When you feel like changing things up, turn your barrette into a...pencil topper.
