So I spent the day making a stuffed owl for a friend. I made it from a www.AngelLeaDesigns.com pattern, which was very well done and easy to follow. This was my first attempt at appliqué, and to my surprise, not a complete failure. I made a "practice" owl, which was far from perfect but very lovable.
Then after a run to Joann's for some different interfacing I made the "real" owl:
I am pleased with the final product and will definitely be making this adorable owl again.
