People are constantly combing through Etsy and other sites with a single search term, a one word tag: owl.
What is this fascination, this addiction so many of us have?
Owls have a certain mystery...
"Owls know when to move silently and when to be still, which makes them the keepers of secrets. These solitary birds don't feel the need to proclaim their presence to anyone until the timing is right. Owl comes to us when we need to open our eyes, and study the situation at hand. If we watch and listen with our inner selves we can figure out what is happening behind the scenes, and confront those who are trying to deceive us at the appropriate time." -from animaltotem.com.
I make plush owls quite often. The larger ones are pillow sized and make funky couch and bed decor. The small ones are just irresistable, and they sell like hotcakes. I use bright prints, often designer fabrics, which I purchase on Etsy (Denver doesn't have the best fabric selection), felt, and funky buttons. I currently have several for sale at BridgeWater Arts, in Boston. And I just finished making a bunch for an upcoming craft show.
I will definitely post a
Baby Owlie tutorial, some day soon...
