This is the other item I made for the Craftster needlework swap. My partner had lots of owls and lots of day of the dead stuff on her pinterest and so I designed this. I sketched out a very basic owl on graph paper and then added loads of decoration. I then used a sulky transfer pen to transfer my design onto my the felt. He is backed with a sugar skull design fabric and stuffed with toy filling. I might try and scan my pattern and add it to this post as a pdf if anyone wants it?
I like the teeth/beak the best - I was very pleased with how that looked - I was feeling very smug as I was stitching that bit up !!
The boys loved it too- all those bright colours they thought it must be for them right? I managed to rescue it before Rory dribbled on it!
