Wise Guy Owl Bookend & Plushie
by Ruby Jean's Closet
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 --
