The Rubber Punkin. Such a cute free pattern!
Instead of stuffing the owl, I used one layer of plastic and one layer of warm 'n natural batting inside, for that soft crinkle, crinkle sound that my baby loves. The plastic is actually a piece of diaper wipes packaging, which is one of Ruby's favorite things to get her hands on.
Just cut the plastic and batting to the main pattern piece size and sew them together. Then layer it on top of your outer owl pieces and sew according to the directions in the tutorial. Using a walking foot on your sewing machine also helps!
I used minky fabric on the back to make it extra soft and cuddly.
Munch, munch ... crinkle, crinkle. This is going to be your baby's favorite chew toy.
Update: Ruby's leggings are from Kohl's (thanks, grandma!) and I made the headband using the rolled felt flower tutorial at I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar. The elastic is called Fold Over Elastic (FOE) and can be pretty commonly found in the elastic/trim section at your fabric store. It is my favorite elastic for baby headbands because it is super soft, comes in great colors, and is wider than your typical elastic.
