I know that people say the owl trend is fading, but in my house owls are forever. We live in a patch of woods that is filled with owls and are lucky enough to hear them quite often. It never gets old. That's why this pillow project caught my eye as the perfect addition to my daughter's room.
This particular pillow is made from a cotton drop cloth (a cheap material often overlooked for sewing use), but you could choose any sturdy fabric that will take paint well. If you're not in need of a pillow, you can download the owl template and use it on something else.
