Harry Potter Owl Wear

I loved this idea at Recycled Fashion so much that I purchased my first ever sewing kit just to make some of my own!

I didn't have any ties around the house, so I went the thrift store and found tons of retro ties. Why would anyone discard these awesome patterns!? Oh well, they are put to good use now :)

Time: 30 minutes

1. Tie
2. buttons
3. felt
4. thread and needle
5. safety pin
6. scissors
7. old hair band

1. Follow Owl directions found on the link above.
2. Cut the left-over tie fabric to fit an old hair-band.
3. Sew one end up.
4. Thread the tie through
5. Cut a tiny slit in the tie and place hand-band through
Then you are finished, and now you have an adorable owl broach and matching hair-band :)


  1. Soooo....other than a Harry Potter convention, where else is it appropriate to wear an HP owl broach?

  2. LOL Garrett, that is no matter! It makes me smile :)

  3. I not only want an owl broach and matching headband...I NEED them! This is SO cute!

  4. Lauren, I actually thought about you the entire time I was making this! You will be the first person on my OWL to do list!
