-I made this for the Vintage Halloween swap, inspired by some smaller vintage owls.  He's about 12" high, made of fabric and covered in (gulp) glitter.  The eyes were an accidental find, but I can't imagine any other use for those buttons than owl eyes!

and here's another view (borrowed from rackycoo!)  Smiley

Mine, mine, mine! I just love my new owl!

Look how great he looks in my dining room, next to his new friend, Mr. Crow.

I absolutely adore this. Now I can't be convinced that I DON'T need a glittery owl in my life.

LOL nooo.  I think you need one too.
MW-  I stitched him up, stuffed him and gave him feathers. Then covered him in black glitter. (Eeeeeek!)  His legs are fabric wrapped wire.  Smiley

Thanks all! - And Diesels mom - it is based off of that pattern, although I changed most of it.  (I changed the head size and shape, wing shape, tail shape, ears and eyes.  Also I added the fabric feathers.)  I pretty much just used it as a guideline for the body gussets and legs.  Good eye though!  Have you tried any of the patterns in that book?
