Get a polystyrene ball and some fabric
Wrap the fabric around the ball, and cut it
You should have a rough circle
Now get a needle and thread, and tie it(I forgot the expression!)
Now start sewing...
A running stitch!
It doesn't mater if it isn't neat, because your not going to see it
At the end DO NOT TIE IT OFF!
Place the ball in the middle
And start pulling the needle and thread, so it scrunches up
So close now
After its all scrunched up, add a few last stitches and tie off
Cut the thread!
Trim the scrunched up bit to make it flatish
On the other side, it should be smooth like this
You can flatten it slightly if it doesn't stand up
There we go!
Cut two pieces of brown felt
Cut two smaller pieces of cream felt
Cut two tiny circles with black felt
Stack them on top of each other, and glue them together
Put glue on the back of the eyes
And stick them on your owl
Cut two wing shapes with brown and stick them on the owl
Put the on the side
Cut two feet shapes with creme felt
Put glue on them
And stick them on the bottom of the owl
Now... It's missing a beak!
Cut a creme triangle
Stick it in between the eyes
Now cut two long triangles
Get some sharp scissors and make two small line holes where the ears would go
Sit the ear in the hole...
And press it down the hole slightly with your scissors
Now so the other one!
Ta da!! A cute owl!
