Owl Treat Bag

Who doesn't love owls--and Halloween? I made this owl treat bag a few years ago. I had been playing around with the idea of making felt fringe, and it seemed perfect for this project. The cylinder-shaped bag is made from felt and embroidery floss, with a few button details. I designed the project as a Halloween treat bag, but you could also use it as a tabletop decoration. That's where my owl will be landing soon.

This little guy was featured in the Fall 2013 issued of Crafts 'n Things--now Craft Ideas--magazine. (That's him up there on the cover.) Instead of giving you the directions here, I'm sharing the link to the project page on the Craft Ideas website: Owl Treat Bag. You can print the directions right from the page, which also has a link to printable patterns.

Here are some additional photos to help you understand how the owl is constructed:
