Owl Crinkle Toy Refashion
It’s soft, it crinkles, and part of it is made from an old T Shirt. My love for owls is growing so it was only a matter of time before I created an owl softie toy. To create this owl, I had my handy, dandy husband draft up a template for me to trace, based on my sketch. The light blue material was cut from an old T Shirt (I love a good refashion). Instead of sewing the wings down to the body, I kept the inside edge loose so that little hands could be slipped into the “pockets” that are created by the wings. I used a soft, fleece fabric for the outside of the wings to give a nice tactile feel. There is a contrasting fabric on the inside of the wings and backside of the owl. I chose to create the nose and eyes out of felt (instead of buttons or googly eyes) to avoid choking hazards. Lastly, babies LOVE anything that crinkles. So, I cut up a diaper wipes bag and plastic cereal liner to add the crinkle affect. For the stuffing, I used a loose fill for the owl body and a batting liner for the wings.
And when we are done with the toy… It gets the touchdown football slam!
