Owls are a huge trend right now. Get in on the fun by making your own Owl Pillow from Heidi Borchers and using it to decorate your home. No-sew fabric crafts are perfect for craft beginners because they don't require a ton of time or expertise.

Materials:

  • Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Permanent Dry Cleanable Fabric Glue
  • Scotch tape
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Burlap fabric – cut to desired size for finished pillow
  • Fabrics – I used fabrics from clothing I found at the thrift store including cotton, velveteen and sweaters
  • Owl pattern
  • Buttons – two for eyes and several for branch embellishments
  • Pillow form

Instructions:

  1. To apply a thin line of glue, apply a piece of tape to tip of glue bottle. Begin by positioning the tape at an angle, roll bottle until tape forms tip.
