Hey everybody! I made this pillow for my partner in the recent Newbie Swap. She likes owls (who doesn't?) and she likes mustaches (also, who doesn't?) so I made one of the owls look rather manly. An owly Burt Reynolds, if you will.



I cut out the owl shapes and appliqued them onto the fabric, then did a little embroidery on each of them to make them unique. I used felt for the beaks, feet, and face, and buttons for their eyes. I also found a cute owl-print fabric at Joann's and used that for the back of the pillowcase.

Here's the finished product. Thanks for checking out my post!
