I’m sharing with you my new needle felted creations.
My first bird is this little owl (Athene noctua). The name ‘Little Owl’ is the accepted common name of this species, not just a cute way to describe them, although they are very cute! I used multiple images of Little Owl to see the shape and the typical patterns.
Eyes are very important, so I started with clear glass doll eyes and hand painted with acrylic paint. The shape of the owl is made from merino wool. I used steel wire for the frame of the foots wrapped with wool.
I’m really pleased with how he turned out.
