Grumpy owl

For the OTT, I made my partner a little grumpy owl. I used the Dastardly Owl pattern but I had to shrink the pattern down to 45% to meet the requirements of the swap.

I really liked the way he turned out. The pattern was super easy to follow, though I did need to make a few adjustments because I shrunk it so much.

I think I’ll make a full size owl one of these days.

Ann Wood is one of my favorite designers! I have this pattern as well as many of her other ones…now that I see how great your owl turned out, I hope to get mine at least started this fall.

Love the fabrics you picked as well…and you sure got a dastardly expression for it being on such a small scale!

You did a phenomenal job capturing his personality. Those toes (claws) are amazing too! And to do it at 45% scale must have been tough. Love the color combos and textures you chose!

Great work! Maybe he is grumpy for being woken up during the day, I have the same look when it happens to be.
I know they are not similar, but for some reason he reminds me of this owl from an old TV show we watched as kids:
