Mini Owls

Hello all,

I have some new Owls to share with you. I think I have mentioned before that I am addicted to working with felt these days, I have spent a fortune on good wool felt and embroidery yarn, and besides making lots of felt garlands I have also been handstitching smallish plush owls in felt (each ca. 5" tall and 4.5" wide).

It takes forever to do by hand but it's so relaxing and I love making these while we are watching telly in the evenings or listening to music.

I made 9 so far in lots of bright colors, each of them with wings, a beak and eyes in different colors. I also used colorful embroidery thread to show the stitches and I really like the effect. They can be used as ornaments as each of them comes with a loop for hanging.

I think these would make the perfect decor for a nursery or for Easter and other celebrations.

I hope you like them. I certainly loved making them and will no doubt make many more.

Lots of love and let me know what you think.
