Finishing off the owl.

The owl is finished.
There was a pattern for a little head piece along with the other pieces of the owl pattern.
I cut it out from a scrap left over from the furnishing fabric I'd made his body with.  I tacked a piece of the feathery chiffon to it, frayed the edges, and then couched on some of the cut-off threads I'd kept during the process of making him.
Then I stitched the head piece on to the owl.

I trimmed his claws and painted them black.

Today I took him outside in the sunshine for the photo call.  His claws do look a bit big!

My husband likes the back better than the front.

I'm just glad to see the back of him!
