Sleepy Bobbin Owl



This little barn owl looks so sleepy and content on his twig that I gathered from my garden. He’s mounted on a vintage bobbin – a slightly larger one than usual measuring 2” tall that I’ve wrapped with dark blue felt embroidered with oak leaves and gold stars. The owl’s feathers are embellished with gold too.  Vintage bobbins are easy to come by on sites such as eBay, but if you can’t find one then you can also purchase new wooden bobbins online that will look just as nice.

Measuring 4” high (without bobbin and twig) this owl isn’t a beginner’s make, but he isn’t as hard as you may think!

Pattern includes full instructions, with photographs, to stitch and assemble your owl and bobbin, DMC floss requirements and full size templates.

Please note, this is a listing for the pattern to make your own owl and not the finished item.  It is a digital pattern and you will not receive anything in the post.  Your pattern will be emailed to you and will also be available in your Bustle & Sew account as soon as your order is complete.
