The dastardly  pdf sewing pattern – available as a pdf digital pattern or  a booklet that comes in the mail. EU and UK owl makers please purchase your pattern on Etsy.

Find the materials list in the pattern. As we did in the spectacularly successful crow sew-along we’ll begin by creating the body shape. 

You don’t need to sign up for anything to participate – just get the pattern, gather your materials and  look for the post on November 25th.


Community support is the best part of a sew-along especially if you’re feeling nervous or overwhelmed about starting a project. 

You can follow and post in the owl sew-along topic in the stitch club community – you can request to join the growing community here

There will also be a facebook group – I have not figured out yet if it should be a new group or if we should just change the crow group to an owl group – stay tuned on that and feel free to let me know what you think in the comments.

Will you join us for the owl-along? Are you an overachiver and have already gathered your fabric? Let us know in the comments.


  1. Thanks, Ann! The crow sew along was so delightful I can’t resist the owl. I’m gathering materials today.

    Can’t wait for the Dastardly Owl sew-along – I did the owl quite awhile ago but look forward to doing another along with everyone else – so much easier to follow along and see what others are doing at the same time.
    thanks for doing this – and for the wonderful patterns!

  3. I don’t think I will do an owl at this time; kind of want to keep playing with the crows. But I’d love to follow along and see what people do! My vote is to keep the same FB group going under whatever name works.
    ‘Once you change the name of your group, all members will receive a notification that you’ve changed the name. You can’t change the group’s name more than once every 28 days.’

    • Thanks so much for that Brigid – saved me a bunch of searching. I will do that – it makes much more sense to me than starting another group.

  4. Kari Fraser

    Please please add the Owlalong project to the Crowalong FB page. I (and I can’t be the only one!) am still making crows and I am so excited to start the owl. It is just more manageable to only check one FB group vs. two. Especially when we (some of us) will also be checking the new stitch club place. You all are teaching me how to hand sew and I am so appreciative!

    • Thanks so much Kari and I agree – so much easier to have one group.

  5. Is the Raven sew-along still available? Are there videos? Please and thank you.

  6. For sure just use the crow group – all birds and then we can see what everyone is doing! Im totally doing the owl too. Way too much fun!

    Very excited about the owl sew-along! Thank you for all the work you do to keep us sewing!!

  8. One group works for me….excited about the owl sew along . My crow is almost finished. Now I have a new crow deadline!
    Thank you for doing these sew alongs.

  9. I like the idea of keeping the same Facebook group. It seems easier than starting another one.
    I have made a couple of owls in the past and have started one for the sew along. I will probably make more than one. Let’s keep this sew along thing rolling! It’s so much fun

  10. Thank you! I loved making the crow. I purchased the owl. I am excited to join you again.

    I purchased the Owl PDF today. Do I get an email when ready to download?
    Thanks Jacque S.

  12. Thank you for the sew alongs, Ann. I think best to keep the same Facebook group going and hope the crows won’t be too put out when they see the parliament of owls taking over!

  13. Claire Kelly

    Oh cool… I bought the pattern some time back and I haven’t done anything with it yet. Definitely keen to play!

  14. Plan on doing sew along also! Thank you for the lovely sewing ideas!!

    Hi Ann
    I tried to join the stitch club. I got an e-mail saying welcome, but nothing was on the e-mail. Does it exist? Don’t belong to facebook.
