DIY Patchy Minky Stuffed Owl

I’ve been saving the post on this guy for a little while, because he goes with my Gender Neutral Minky Baby Quilt which was a Christmas gift for my little niece or nephew who will be arriving in the spring. (I really wanted the element of surprise!)

The only thing about Mr. Owl is that he looked a lot better pre-stuffing… Next time, I’d like to make him wider, maybe even round. I’d also stuff his belly so it sticks out a little more. I don’t think he looks bad – but he definitely looks home-made. 

Let me know how you’d make him better next time. – Joy
