They Make Great Ornaments, Too!

These cute little owls make delightful pincushions. They’ll  also be fun as ornaments. Add a cord and hang them from the tree or simply set them on a shelf.

We can imagine them peeking out from a centerpiece during the holidays or hung anywhere all year long. Just change the fabric to suit the season.


Use fabric you love for a pincushion, and make a few extra while you’re at it. They’re simple to do and make fun gifts for quilting and sewing friends.

The following examples, from Geoff’s Mom Pattern Company, are very similar and show how the owls look in other colors.



It will also be fun to play with buttons for the eyes. This is a great place to put vintage buttons to good use.

The finished owls, from At Home with Rosie, are about 3″ tall.

You’ll also need the cutting template, which is available here.


PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
