I used to collect owls, many many moons ago. Although I don't collect them anymore, they still hold an attraction for me. This owl is a design by Rock River Stitches. The leaf and acorns I added . . . just because I liked them.
The owl measures approx. 7" tall. He is made of 100% repurposed wool and stuffed with polyester filling. I attached him to a stick from my backyard with some rusty wire and also secured with fishing line.
The leaf is also made of wool and has been blanket stitched. There is wire between the front and back, for bending. One small portion of leaf is hand sewed to owl with fishing line. The acorns are made from homespun with real acorn caps. They are sewn to the wire holding the leaf in place.
There is a rusty wire hanger on the back. Perfect for hanging on a peg shelf, cupboard door knob, etc.
