Clever Owl

Based on my last two softy making exercises I now think that I know it all... I sketched up this owl, my talented other half popped it into the computer and aligned it all into a pattern including seam allowances where necessary and I printed it out and made him. Just like that!

I did go astray with the pattern for the wings, but no matter because it worked out OK in the end. I am not sure I like his cutesy look, I think I like my owls to be more serious. To compensate I staged him atop Tolstoy's 'War and Peace' in Russian and against something seriously brainy by Dostoevsky (I think The Brothers Karamazov, but thats testing my language skills).

Thanks - obviously its not my book, but I recognised a few cyrillic letters here and there. I really like the look of this book, all plain and brown but with this fabulously fancy looking title script.
