Feathery Felt Barn Owl Ornament

This little barn owl is my favorite felt ornament yet. With individual feathers and buttons for eyes, I can imaging her perching on the barn rafters. If we had a barn.

    Thank you so much for sharing your designs, not sure where to start but I think the owls will look great on a cushion along with trees, beads, and brooches! Thanks again your designs are great.

    I just came across your blog through Pinterest. I LOVE these felt bird ornaments. Thank you for sharing your patterns! I haven’t made one yet, but I will soon and I’m sure my daughter will want to try one as well. Lovely!

    This owl is stunning! I’m going to make some of your birds to use with a bird theme storytime here at the library. They will be adorable flannelboard pieces for some rhymes and maybe a “Which One is Missing?” game. Thanks for sharing so generously.

    What lovely little bird ornaments. I plan to make a christmas wreath with these little sweeties. Thanks so much.


  8. Hey there,
    I don’t know how to post a picture of the owls we made, but I’ll send you an email. I made these with the kids that come for storytime at the library. I enlarged the pattern a bit, we used fun foam rather then felt, and no sewing only gluing, 🙂 but the basic pattern was the same. Great pattern, thanks so much!

    I love these little birds. I’m going to make them with a magnet inside for my grandson to use on the fridge. He’ll love them!

    Thank you for Feathery Felt Barn Owl. He just flew across the street to my neighbor’s tree in her living room. His warm-blooded version lives in her palm tree. Thank you for sharing your gift.

    Thank you so much for the patterns! The felt birds will be PERFECT for the tree in my 4K classroom when we talk about animals that can be found in a tree.

    I love this blog – Thank you so much for the tutorials. I made my friend the barn owl for her Birthday card and she loved it. You can see it on my blog if you would like 🙂

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful pattern. I am simply interested in barn owls. I think they are peculiar and wonderful birds.
    I was looking for cross stitch patterns about them when I found your work. I would like to make an owl.

    Thank you for this barn owl pattern, both my girls are in Scouts and our local group is the 1st Marske & New Marske Barn Owls (North East UK). I will be putting this design as pride of place in the centre of their camp blankets.

    Thank you so much for sharing.
