Title: Owls, Owls, OWLS! Alive and undead!
Post by: deadsweaters on October 03, 2013 12:36:33 AM
For the last round of the sweat shop swap, I offered skele-owls!!  I have a bit of an obsession with skelanimals in general, so these were a lot of fun to make!!



They are 100% felt and a little over 6" tall.  I chose the colors after finding out what colors all of my partners preferred.  I loved these little guys, they were all so unique due to the fact that I don't really make these off a pattern.  I made a pattern for the owl shape, but I leave the rest to free hand to give each one a personality of their own.

One of my partners wanted an owl for her niece....non-skeleton of course and I remember "NO PINK!" being a huge factor. hehe. :)
So I made a fully alive owl for the little one...which I think turned out to be my favorite! (shh...don't tell the undead! eek!)  I called her miss pretty while she was staying here.



Luckily, they were all very kind to each other before they made their way to six different parts of North America!  The skeles didn't even make fun of miss pretty for looking different.  So wise and sweet! :)



Thanks for looking! :) <3

Multiples of the same thing repeated in rainbow colors + felt + skele-stuff + owls = HEART.

I NEEDS them!  Very nicely done.  ;)
