I was messing around with the crocodile stitch and thought that, in brown, it looked like feathers, and so I made this owl:



I just sort of winged it (er, no pun intended), and am not totally happy with the ears, but it works.

I didn't have anything in mind for what to do with this when I was finished (hence the title), but I imagine it could work nicely as an appliqu - the best idea for this I came up with last night when I was imagining a blanket that looked like a zoomed-in picture of a tree (focused on the branches with the trunk off to the side) with a bunch of these owls attached so they were sitting on the branches.  I guess I'm going to have to make that now!

I figured you're never really going to see the back, regardless of what you do with this, so I wasn't as careful with weaving in the ends.  Here's the back:

I had the very same idea when first trying out the crocodile stitch! I didn't go down that route as I was making this charger pocket but now that I see yours, I'm thinking I SHOULD have done it. It's really cute Smiley
