This is the most snuggly, cuddly, and super soft owl around!

Using lilac yarn, slip stitch along round 2 to make an outline of the eye.

Sew on button eyes. Alternatively you could start your eyes with black yarn (just for the magic ring round) if you don’t want buttons on your finished piece.

Sew all pieces onto one side of owl body.

Stuff with old or unused bed sheets! I used a king size bed sheet that we don’t use anymore. You could also use this as storage for stuffed animals or soft toys. In that case you will want to attach buttons (or zipper?) to the top edge so it can be opened and closed.
