I'm working on a series of small owls. I will do some "realistic" and others just for fun. This one is about 2.5". I'm very pleased with how he turned out! =^..^=

This is so cute!!  I just ran across a little felted barn owl on pinterest last night.  That one didn't have this perfect little perch though!!

Thanks!!!  Cheesy Cheesy

I think I spent a couple hours making this guy. I'm in the process of making more and different types of owls - trying to figure out the best way to put them together so that the process is faster and easier to explain and do.

Thank you!!!  Cheesy  Cheesy

I've got a lot more owls made. These are quite fun to make. Did a spectacled owl yesterday that was very interesting.

Here are a couple more pictured with the barn owl you've already seen:

THank you!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I've been working this little (2.5-3") guy today -



I was going to do more detailing on the wings/back, but given his size I think that might make him too busy. I'm going to let him (and me) rest and think about that idea for a while.

He is very pretty and realistic! I would leave it like this, I agree that adding more would be too busy or distracting. No offence, I admire your work!!  Cheesy
