Baby Owl/ Bird Wall Hanging

This is a cute, unique gift for the new baby. Just add the blue or pink fabric depending one whether you are making it for a new baby girl or boy. These ones are made with a natural coloured homespun or calico with a few scraps of quilters cotton for the wings/eyes. But you can make the birds/owls from any kind of patterned fabric you like to make them really funky. You can purchase and download my pattern if you need to.

They are pretty easy to make but watch this space because I’ve got an idea to make them even simpler. This simpler option would be great for those who don’t like to use the sewing machine.

Anyway here is how you make the owl hanging. Don’t worry, if you like the bird I’ve posted them together but on separate posts just so the posts don’t get too long. Continue reading “Baby Owl/ Bird Wall Hanging”
