Description

I made this owl after I’d been down on holiday to the lovely city of Bath , and saw an owl on sale in a gift shop . I was so tempted to buy it but then thought , hey , I could probably make one. So with my photo of it , I managed to recreate it . He has become more of an ornament and sits beside my vintage tea cups and a fabric mouse .

Material Notes

Different patterned cotton, embroidery floss, pink and yellow felt , wadding for stuffing him ! and red buttons for the eyes

    I saw these cute owls a few months ago somewhere on the net and had to make one too. :) It was a love at first sight. I made mine in a red gingham and flowery fabric. I like your choice of fabric, he looks funky. If he is looking for a girl, check her out here: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/red-gingham-chill-symphony :)

    Your’s is way better than the one from the shop. I just want to snuggle him. I’m inspired. I always want to make some sort of awesome looking creature but I never do. …I think I might!
