Gather your supplies
Quilting fabric scraps; cream woven fabric; toy filling; cream felt; fawn felt; black beads; orange embroidery cotton or wool; dark embroidery thread; fabric glue; Mod Podge Gloss; matching thread; embroidery needle
Step 1 Using a photocopier, enlarge Branching Out Diagrams to 150% for small owl, 250% for medium and 300% for large.
Step 2 Trace back onto quilting fabric and front onto cream woven fabric. Cut out. With right sides facing, and bases aligned, pin and stitch 1 curved side of front to 1 curved side of back, stopping 6mm from pointy end of front, and using 6mm seam allowances throughout. Repeat for other curved sides. Fold the ‘body’ in half with all raw edges aligned and so front is tucked inside back. Working along curved edge, stitch closed opening at top. Turn through.
Step 3 Using the main image as a guide, fold point of quilting fabric forward and stitch to white fabric at front of owl, using orange embroidery cotton or wool, to make a nose.
Step 4 Running stitch around base of owl. Stuff with toy filling and pull thread to gather base. Glue a circle of felt over base.
Step 5 Cut two 7mm circles from cream felt. Cut a 7mm circle from fawn felt and cut in half. Glue a fawn semi-circle to 1 half of each cream felt circle for eyelids. Stitch a black bead to each cream circle, under eyelid. Glue eyes to owl.
Step 6 Paint a twig with Mod Podge and leave to dry. Using dark embroidery thread, stitch owl to twig in 2 places for talons.
