Project TypeMake a Project
Time to CompleteIn an evening
- Scraps or fabric of your choice
- Little piece of felt
- Double-sided fusible
- Matching thread
Cut out all shapes, transfer the marks on the pattern.
For one owl you'll need: 1 front piece, 1 back piece, 2 eyes (with double-sided on the LSF), 2 buttons for the eyes, 2 wings, 1 layer insulated batting, 1 layer regular batting
Attach bias on the upper edge of the wings and sew them in place.
Cut out the eyes and iron them in place. Sew around the edge of the eyes with a small zig-zag.
Make a quilt sandwich, you can use adhesive spray or pin the layers. Since this is a small project, both will be fine.
Make a hanging tag from 10 cm bias binding, sew along the open side, form a loop and place it on the mark between the ears (backside).
Sew the binding into place.
Attach the buttons for the pupils.

These little owls are a lovely looking pattern and can easily be made by applying basic potholder instructions and the outline of the Owls seems pretty easy to duplicate. Just looking at these little guys brings a smile to my face! Owls are really popular now and these would make a great gift. Thanks for sharing!

I have some family and friends that love owls and this will be a great gift for them. This is such a cute hot pads but the video and tutorial are in German. I still watched it and you can follow it and the photos can help. Has anyone found one that is in English. I am going to try an find an owl pattern that I can download to make one.Love these little owls.

I have found the patterns for Max and Molly, which are identical to Henry and Hobbes except for an additional bias strip on the wing. Rather than try to figure out how to give you the URL, I have saved it to my Dropbox, and you may download the pattern from there. Don't fret about the German annotations. It is pretty straightforward. https//www.dropbox.com/s/o6d7dbo == 9qeo8lb2/Owl%20Hotpad%20Max%20and%20Molly%202%20-% == 20annotated.pdf?dl=0 Happy sewing.

I have tried for hours to find a printout pattern for Henry and Hobbes owl hot pads, with no luck. I have tried everything I can think of. Please help me. I am frustrated!!

Nowhere does it states it is a printable pattern. If you click on the area that it says click for images you will find an extremely well-written pattern. Pretty rude to give negative feedback for your error.
