Hooo’s the Cutest?

To make your own felt owl stuffie, start by downloading the pattern on the right hand side at the top of this post and cutting the templates into soft wool felt. The only stitching skills you need are a running stitch and blanket stitch. Therefore, this pattern makes a great project for a child or a beginner. Once all your pieces are cut, you can follow the tutorial below to assemble the little guy.
