a pattern for the owl


I thought I would draw out the pattern for the owl applique that I did last week for my two year old's shirt. The pieces (are not so steadily) drawn so that you can layer them as you applique - meaning you can slide the wings slightly under the body or the body under the head at the top. Does that make sense? I just traced around a button for the large part of the eye, so do that if it is easier than using the pattern piece. And, for the inside of the eye I sewed on a black button. This pattern could also be used for embroidery. I might have to try that. You can download the pdf here.
