One of the best things about Blythe is she’s just the right size to whip up an adorable outfit for in a couple of hours (or less!) .. and she looks adorable in anything!
Blythe is known as a model among the community and a creative inspiration. Some of my favorite outfits were handmade painstakingly with a cute photo in mind — yet another creative way to spend your free time.

.. and remember we have a pattern here as well you should try!
So you want to create a ‘fuggly’ owl to be your pal? Though yours doesn’t have to be fuggly, that’s just the way I sew! (hehe)
1. Cut out two triangles (one small one, one bigger one) with slightly curved edges as seen.
note: it’s not an exact science, so you may like to experiment with longer, shorter, wider, thinner, curvier triangles.
2. Face the fabric inwards and sew up one side. As you sew, pull the two fabric edges so that they are together. There will be a gap where the ‘A’ triangle ends. Continue sewing up along the side of B triangle, then back down along the other side.
3. Sew around the bottom opening so that you can pull on the thread and draw the bottom closed like a drawstring bag. Fill it with filling and pull the bottom closed.
note: I use grain but wool or polyester stuffing is also good. Do not fill it up too much!
4. Fold the top down and secure it. This makes the beak.
note: This is why you don’t want to fill it too much because you wont be able to pull the beak far down, though some people like very small beaks. If so then fill it up lots!
5. Add eyes.
note: Beads work well. Fabric has a tendency to fray when cut too small. Don’t learn this the hard way!
