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.
