I made this for my man for his birthday. He's a photographer and he likes owls, so I thought this would be perfect. I'm pretty sure that I got the pattern from a vintage embroidery pool on flikr... I just can't remember which one
Unfortunately, it's starting to sag in the frame since I made it back in may. I was hesitant to use something like spray adhesive because I didn't want it to discolor over time. And I didn't leave enough extra fabric on the sides to lace it up the back (measure twice, cut once. Meh, just start cutting- yeah thats me)
Anyways, just didn't want you to think I would frame and give it to him looking that crappy
For the eyes, I used glow in the dark thread from Sublime Stitching. As a photographer my DH was quick to point out the cloth over the camera should be black (ugh). I knew this, but the stripes were more fun, and they match his personality better.
