This adorable owl is created by hand from a pattern designed by the artist. She crochets the owl, hand felts it by agitating the form in very hot water, then finally creates the final form back into the desired owl shape. She puts the owl on a form to keep its shape and hand sews the felted eyes. This is a long process that is all done with the love of creating a beautifully finished piece that is great for gift giving, organizing your personal items, or adding a special touch to your home decor.
- 6 in. H x 3 in. W
- Hand felted and hand-sewn
