Flirtatious Fabric: Two little Owls


After the week I’ve had, I’m considering renaming this blog ‘Sewing Obsession’ – it seems I’ve been well and truly bitten by the stitching bug!

The other day I had the urge to make an owl from some of the lovely Stampin’ Up! fabric, ‘Flirtatious‘. Browsing on You Tube, I found a great tutorial – by a lady called Whitney – which looked quick and easy.


Whitney kindly offers the pattern for the owl (in two sizes) on her blog, Whitney Sews, as a free download.. if you pop over there for the pattern, do say that I sent you! ;o)

So here’s the first one I made in under an hour on Tuesday evening..

Little Owl - Flirtatious fabric by Stampin' Up!

I used all three patterns from the ‘Flirtatious’ Designer Fabric pack (competitively priced at £8.95 for three generous fat quarters), along with two Perfect Plum buttons from the Subtles Designer Buttons collection.

Once my son Harry had claimed this owl (and named it Owlz), I was instantly commissioned by Charlie (my other boy) to make another one…

So here they are together, Owly and Owlz:

Owlz and Owly!

Owly is made to exactly the same pattern, this time using Marina Mist buttons from the Subtles Designer Buttons collection. If you wanted to make these for a baby, you could of course use fabric circles in place of the buttons.

Lovely! Next time I’ll have some shabby chic style bunting to show you, using Stampin’ Up! Candy Cane Christmas Designer Fabric, along with some repurposed duvet cover fabric..

See you soon..
