  1. Trace the patterns; cut out. Use the patterns to cut felt shapes; use pinking shears to cut the circles and inner wings.
  2. Use three plies of floss and blanket stitches to outline the bottom section of the owl body and the head. Place the wings on the body and blanket-stitch outer edges together. Place the head on the body; add the circles, working running stitches around the circles.
  3. Sew buttons to the right-hand half of both circles.
  4. Tack the owl to the pencil holder at the outer wings.This owl embellishment would also be cute on a tote, t-shirt or an album cover.
