Step 1: Materials & Pattern
Using an old grocery bag, I cut out the shape of an owl. To get the shape even, fold the paper in half and then cut. I've shown the dimensions on a standard grid.
2 Bodies & one bust (Body minus the head - This is only if you want the front to look different)
2 Eye liners (Any shape you wish...make your owl special)
If you are using a stretchy/velvety material, you will need to make 2 additional bodies out of something like an old dress shirt, or pillow case to sew the stretchy material to. This keeps it from moving while you sew.
