Wool Pillow: The Barn Owl Flies Home at Dawn


For Felix, and he drew the owl for me. All the fabric is upcycled from wool garments collected at thrift stores.


Felting a snippet of yarn onto a wool shape is a beautiful way to make softly defined lines. For sharper ones, I embroider with cotton floss.

Daisy loaned the prop.

Your owl pillows inspired my quail pillow. http://www.etsy.com/listing/69754305/quail-hand-applique-silhouette-accent

I love it. I have enjoyed owls ever since I inherited part of my grandmother's owl knickknack collection after she passed away. I am glad to see that you make owl projects on occasion.

Speaking of birds...

My 15 yo just showed me this youtube video and I thought that you and Felix might especially enjoy it:

Are y'all okay? You rarely go this long not posting without a warning first.

Farrah, sorry about that! We were so rushed getting out the door for Giles' graduation that I forgot to post here. All is well!
