A couple of years ago my friend’s daughter really wanted me to help her make an owl so I made a simple pattern and we ended up making a whole family of owls in differing sizes. I took one of the biggest owls to a craft fair last year and I got loads of comments about him and several people said they’d buy it if it was a doorstop. So, I started making owl doorstops. They’ve been really popular and are fun to make. They all have their own personalities and differences even if I use similar materials. I’ve had several commissions for them and even made a hound one for someone! I use sturdy and funky fabrics and use felt appliqued on for the faces and cute button eyes. This little guy is made from printed cotton. You can see some of the others on my blog: www.delicatestitches.blogspot.com
