Ok, so I have a mild obsession with owls.  I have liked them waaay before they became the new fad.  I remember having owls in one of my kitchens many years ago.  Anywho, (haha) I have been dying to try my hand at making some owl pillows/stuffies.
Please don't laugh at my first attempt!

I used my Give A Hoot cart to cut out the body and the flower eye pieces.  However after the 1st pillow I greatly modified the owl body.  The rest of the pieces were hand cut by me.  Except the circles of course. 

My daughter loved the 1st one and promptly named it "Angela".
Here is the 2nd owl I did.  I think the body is improved although I think I might like the white trim around the eyes better.
And here is a side by side comparasion
Here I added the wings and changed the feet.  I also moved the legs apart on the 1st owl, I think he looks a little bit better.
I'm excited to try a few more of these, next up a boy owl!
