I saw an ad for a Fancy Pants line of paper in my new CK mag and there was a layout with the CUTEST handmade owls! I thought "I could make one of those" and I did! :) I changed mine up a bit and used buttons for eyes and made him a little more "dimensional" so he could "stand" as the ones in the mag seemed to just "lay flat". I didn't use a pattern, just cut the pieces out of felt and sewed it as I went along. It took me about an hour, but now that I made my first one, I think I have a better idea which direction to go as far as what parts get sewed on first, ect. I'm going to make one for my sister and for a friend of mine for Valentine's Day. I thought they could sit them in their scrap spaces or by their computers which is why I wanted him to be able to "sit". He's about 5...maybe 6" tall. Anyway, just thought I'd share. I've done a few pages as of lately, but just haven't gotten around to uploading them here, but if anyone wants to see them, they are in my gallery :)
