Teacher’s Gifts

Owl Brooches

My son & I made our very first Teacher’s Gifts this week — the first of many to come I’m sure.

Avery goes to Little Owl Preschool, so when I came across this tutorial, I knew I wanted to make these cute little owl brooches.

I’ve been extremely busy at the studio and wasn’t able to start working on the gifts until the day before we needed them.  Although this was a fairly simple project, I had to make 9 owls, so it took me about 8 hours to finish all of them.

This is my favorite of the bunch

Avery helped me sew the bodies, iron, and stuff them with fluff. If we had started the project a few days earlier, I would’ve had him do more on his own. By 1am, my husband started helping me sew on the eyes so I could finally get to bed by 2.

The child was delighted to see the finished product in the morning & promptly assigned which owl was going to whom. Avery was very excited to give his teachers their holiday gift and I was very happy to help 🙂
