This is Henry Hoot Owl. He is another holiday work in progress. I still need to add his talons and make him a little mouse “friend.” He is made from cotton and wool thrifted sweaters and wool blend felt. I am feeling so inspired to make sweater animals, that I’m afraid the little ladies won’t get anything else for the holidays!
I kind of want to keep him for myself; to put him on a bookshelf with my vintage books by the Brontes, Shakespeare, Frost, Alcott and Whitman. He kind of looks like the sort of owl that would read the classics.
Now to go finish the other owl and some mice.
