Super easy! I designed this Orville the Owl softie pattern for a Harry Potter Camp I taught. I needed to be able to make it with 20 kids - most of whom had never used a sewing machine before. They did a fabulous job! Every kid made an owl he or she loved! It's so easy my daughter (age 8) made the blue one you see on the cover. :-) Now you can make one too! This is a great first pattern to try if you want to get started making softies.

What You Need+-

You'll Need. . .

  • scraps of fabric for owl front and back ­ - if you use fat quarters you'll have leftovers
  • scraps of felt for eye circles
  • buttons for eyes ­ - I used 7/8" buttons but you could go bigger or smaller. Use what you have!
  • scrap of felt for beak (optional)
  • polyester fiberfill stuffing

Loved it. Super easy. Just what I need for my young girl sewing class. Wonderful introduction to some basic techniques.

Lots of Fun

Wendi, your directions were perfect for my granddaughter’s first sewing project. Emily was very proud of her finished owl, Hootie Hoot.
