The Owl Project

I have been seeing these cute birds all around blogland...I love them, so cute! 
Look at the strings on that nose~no matter how well you think you did trimming threads and tidying up things before pics, there is always at least one untrimmed thread in every picture!!
I made it completely from scraps, didn't buy anything for it!
It is still September, so I am still working on my stash busting!
I looked at a few owls on etsy and blogs and made my own pattern from a Schnucks' sale flyer...
I used chenille scraps for the eyes and the belly.  His nose is a scrap of orange wool felt and I like the pop of color it gave this all black and white look!  The back is the same color as the wings.
I probably would make it a bit taller because when I stuffed it, it got a little shorter than I wanted...
Anyway, he looks really good next to the wool felt pumpkins!

I am linking to these parties, plus others on my sidebar!

I love owls - this is so cute. I like the b&w fabric, as well as, the fuzzy white chest.

I love this (especially that it's B&W) and I love that it was a stashbust. I have owl pillows on my ever growing list of things to make!

Fantastic owl! I admire you working your way through your fabric stash! I've now reached the stage that I've had to stop buying bargain pieces of fabric as I've run out of space! Time to start sewing more I think!
Thanks for linking this to A Round Tuit!

Thanks for sharing your owl with us at A Crafty Soiree! I know what you mean about the threads, only in my case it seems like a stray cat hair always makes it into the picture. See you next time!
