Read Across America- Ruby Jeans Closet Owl Bookends

Wise Guy Owl Bookend & Plushie

by Ruby Jean's Closet

Hello, it's me again, Kari stopping by from That's-Sew-Kari and this time I brought company!

Meet my new friends -- "Hoot" and "Annie" (see what I did there?  Haha).  They are not only smitten with each other, but with reading too!  As we are wrapping up our week-long celebration of Read Across America here on Pattern Revolution, we thought it might be helpful to include a pattern that will help keep your book collection contained.

They're a HOOT!

These fun owls are from the Wise Guy Owl PDF Pattern by Ruby Jeans Closet.  Depending on whether you add poly pellets in with the stuffing, you can make either a bookend or a plushie.  I made a set of bookends.

My youngest's room is decorated in an owl theme and these two fit right in.  Of course, right after I finished taking pictures, my two girls each claimed one and declared them bedtime buddies.

Hoot & Annie wasted no time in making themselves at home.

The great thing about these owls are they are great stash-busters.  I went to the fabric store with the intention of picking up a fat quarter or two and got totally distracted by buying fabric for a different project.  Since I had a deadline, stash-diving was a necessity, but I love how they turned out.  So bright and cheerful.

Party in the back -- mix and match fabrics however you desire.
Great stash buster --  I used leftovers from previous projects and made 2!

Until next time.... It's been a real HOOT --
