Crafty Owl Book Bags - Kids Art Class

This was a super fun and easy project for my kids art class.  We sketched our owls onto canvas book bags (with foil liners inserted to keep from gluing the bags shut!) using fabric markers. Then we cut 1" squares of fabric to make our "feathers" and circles of felt for eyes. I had pre-cut little orange felt triangles for beaks also.  They used fabric glue to attach the feathers in rows starting at the bottom and overlapping upwards. Buttons were used to embellish. Those who finished early were shown how to make fabric circle "yo-yo's" that were then glued down as flowers or eyes.  The fabric markers worked great (much better than the hugely messy fabric paint tubes).  They turned out really cute and personalized!
