This little guy came out just like I pictured in my head, which is always a win in my book!
I used up the leftover yarn and fiber filling from my other owl, mismatched coconut buttons I’ve had forever underneath a matching pair fancy Raku pottery buttons I got in a swap from @MistressJennie, and some cool bookshelf fabric I inherited several years ago from someone else’s ancient stash. I kind of love him. I have no idea what his future holds, he’s not a toy really (cuz, buttons) but he’s also not a curio cabinet kind of fella… for now he’s keeping the first owl company before she gets shipped off to her new home.
I’m pleased with my immature hand stitching on his wings:
And here’s a better look at the wing fabric:
I used old stash craft felt to plump up his wings a bit and give them some stiffness.
Thanks for looking!
