Oly-Fun™ Owl Pillow

Categories: Decor, Halloween, Oly*Fun, Fall

Oly-Fun™ is the perfect fabric for this fun pillow topper to greet your October guests. Owls are popping up everywhere, why not on a pillow front. What makes this project even more versatile is the easy on and off foldover flap at the back, slip in a Crafters Choice® Pillow Insert and you are set. When Halloween is over and the goblins are safely tucked in their beds simply switch out the topper for something creative to welcome the Thanksgiving season. Oly-Fun™ is so easy to cut with no fraying and sewing through multiple layers is simple.
