Owl's Well - April 2022 Island Batik Brand Ambassador Project

 This month's Island Batik Brand Ambassador was sponsored by the soft toy company, Funky Friends Factory. I picked Ollie the Owl because I think owls are awesome and I'm a night owl.  I used 3 fabrics from the new Graphix line (great black and white geometrics) and added an orange dot (Blenders) for a fab pop of color. I searched through my Grandma's button box and created a perfect pair - a big black button and a little white one that fit inside it. The pattern shows felt for the eyes and beak. I used the batik and pinked the edges with pinking shears.

 I had sew much fun sewing this soft toy owl using the FFF pattern and the new Graphix Collection by Kathy Engle. The owl pattern has a lot of personality and pizzazz, especially with the black and white and orange! It has great quilted details too. The pattern is available as an immediate PDF download and so you could start on your own Ollie today! 

If you haven't done any toy or stuffed animal sewing, don't be aftraid. The pattern is very clear and easy to follow. There is even a step-by-step photo tutorial that walks you through the whole process.
