Baby Owl Pattern

Updated: Oct 11, 2023

This Pattern was updated on 02/24/2023. I wanted to revisit this pattern, add more photos and details, and make this pattern more accessible to anyone who does not have felting supplies! Please enjoy!



I actually made this because my aunt loves owls and requested one as a commission, so I designed this little owlet and I'm so very happy with how it turned out!

As the first pattern I've ever written and published it was a huge learning experience! Even though this is a pretty basic pattern, it was fun to try out new techniques!

Assembly:

After you've closed up the top of the head, attach the eyes, I like to poke the backs of the safety eyes in between a couple of stitches on the head, that way the eyes don't look all wobbly and uneven. Then, add the body to the bottom of the head, attach the wings and feet and tail, and finally, add all the embroidery. I added little "V" embroidery marks to kind of look like wings and then I added a beak with orange yarn. After you've done all that, your baby owl is complete!
