a couple of weeks ago a package came in the mail for me and i opened it up to find this insanely cute pair of owls that one of our fp girls in denver had made.  i immediately had to find out how she made them and she was kind enough to send me photos and instructions!

what you need:

needle & thread
scissors
2-3 fun mismatched fabrics (perfect use for an old free people bag!)
2 buttons
small piece of felt
stuffing

use a paper template like this one to cut out your pieces of fabric – use different fabrics for the top and bottom to give it a fun mis-matched look! you’ll need two pieces of fabric for the top (front and back) and two pieces for the bottom (front and back).

2

the first thing you want to do when sewing these little guys is sew on the eyes and beak -  use buttons or felt for eyes and a felt triangle for the nose. for the smaller owls, add on a little piece of fabric at the top if you want to be able to hang it (these would be awesome christmas tree ornaments!)

5

get funky with this little project, the more fabrics and different things you use, the better! you can use beads, buttons, felt or embroider them.

4

next you want to sew the the head to the body, for the front side of the owl and the back. sew on the reverse side of the fabric, which will be on the inside of the owl.

7

after completing this step, you can add a thin strip of fabric to cover the spot where you sewed the top to the bottom, if you choose – just adds to the mix of patterns and looks super cute!

Finally you get to sew the front and back together! place the right sides of the fabric together and start sewing the little owl together all the way around, leaving a small opening the bottom. turn the owl inside out and  stuff the owl – you can even put a little lavender in there to make him smell beautiful!

6

last but not least, sew up the opening & you are finished!

have you guys ever thought of selling the bags? they are great! i have only been to a store once because there are none in kentucky, so i only have one bag(I buy a lot of my fp clothes online or at von maur). my friends love the bag! i am a dancer and always have to have my clothes and dance shoes with me and it's perfect! and super cute!!!!!

*did you know we have a careers page on facebook? check it out here and like the page to get updates whenever our stores are hiring :)!*

If you're not getting into one store chances are you wont ever. Managers know what they're looking for and if you're not it, you're not it. It does not mean you lack the ability to be a valuable team member it just means you have to try somewhere else. If you love the UO brand why not try a sister store such as Urban or Anthropologie? Also if you live locally why not see if home office has any interning positions or if you're allowed to talk to some of the girls or boys at Bldg 25 maybe they can give you some insight as to what you can do to achieve your dream of joining the company. The main idea, such as is with any dream, if you really want it, you'll find a way to get it.

im with you alexandra - i've dealt with the company a gazillion times and it's like if your best friend doesn't work for them already, good luck getting hired.

Your store is just amazing. I was wondering where you got those coffee tables. They are amazing. I could just live in the store it's so nice and the crew is super sweet. Will for sure spend a lot of time there.
Monie -Mar 25, 2011, 1:37AM
Thanks for opening one in SJ!!!! =] I <3 FP! I was sad that I couldn't attend the grand opening last week, but I had a chance to check it out this evening. Everything was perfect like always when I step into the boutique. It's like walking into a craft/art festival. I love the brick flooring right in front of the store. =)

all eligible applicants can send their resume and free people inspiration board to yournamehere@urbn.com and reference the spring free people visual merchandising internship position.

I am just curious, do all FP internships require that it must be for school credit?
Felicia -Mar 26, 2011, 3:18AM
I beg with my heart and soul that you PLEASE open up a store in South Florida! It would be a great opportunity, as the economy is getting back on track and there are many FP fans here! I'm not sure if this has been considered, but if so, please do let me know. Thanks :) Felicia
