Little Owl Desk Caddy DIY

September 1, 2020

My kids are back to school on Tuesday but not in person.  Our school is beginning online.  Sigh.  Sigh again.  So I made a cute little owl desk caddy for my soon to be 2nd grader.  She is very socialable and this is hard for her.  I am hoping owl caddy will bring her just a little but of joy…

The owl is a simple project from my book Pretty Birds.    I added a pocket to the back and created a weighted base to convert the project into a desk caddy.  It’s really so cute!  To make this you can follow along with my youtube video…

I have a great pattern to take your skills to the next level!

I really enjoyed mising the fabrics to make this one.  That is one of my favorite challenges with making owl and animal pillows.  When you get that fabric combination right, it’s so fun!  I would suggest making your bold print on the back.  Then your medium print on the front and something solid, checked or small dots on the belly.  

I only have a few copies of my book, Pretty Birds left here in my studio.  You can always purchase it on amazon or at other book selling websites.  It’s a fun book with lots of adorable bird projects made using your scrap fabrics.  I have also made a video tutorial for the chicks and the fairy wren from the book.  Enjoy!
