Hi....this is the first stuffed thing I've ever attempted to sew....even if he isn't quite perfect...I think he's a cutie.   My Grandma's 78th birthday is coming up and she loves owls...so I thought this would be a good first project to attempt. Smiley   I found the idea and pattern here.

I also made the card in the background...the bird was an old embroidery pattern I found...I just traced it onto paper and colored it with Sharpies and added the fabric background and sewed it into place  Cheesy

What a good idea for the embroidery pattern!  I have a lot of patterns but less time to embroider it all.  Cute owl, too!

Thats the great thing though, they dont have to be Wink  They have their own charm.

And I'm sure Grandma is going to be in love with him Wink

I absolutely adore that owl pattern.  I have my own growing army of them!  I really like yours.
