Easter greetings from the owl nest! by demiveemon Easter greetings from the owl nest! by demiveemon
Update:

After weeks of crafting mixed with being away from home and finally selling our apartment, Spartacus and his owl siblings are finally ready to leave the nest and conquer... err, I mean discover the world!

Check them out here: [link]
Adopt them here: [link]

Pippin - Sold
Kira - Sold

End of update.

I started on these owls a couple of months ago after I had raided my local fabric store and discovered two new colors in their modest selection of faux fur (which prior to this addition consisted of three colors...). Once home I got started on twelve owls but got interupted soon after so they've been lying around unfinished ever since.

Realizing that my mother in law's birthday was just two days away and I was still missing a birthday gift for her, I decided to finish up the four owls that were closest to completion and let her pick one. She picked the white owl with a green belly. Oh, and these guys introduce a new size as they are smaller than the original three owls I made close to a year ago. :3

I'm hoping to finish the rest soon, as well as a certain horse plush I've been devoting much of my time to over the recent weeks. In the mean time I wish you a happy Easter!

Materials: Faux fur, faux suede, safety eyes and styrofoam beads

I love these little poofs! They look very well made; a lot of handmade plushies seem like they would start coming apart after a few hugs, but not these. Did you sew each of those belly details on individually? (example: the white spots on the red belly)
Also, a belated congrats on the DD~

Thank you for your kind words. Of the plushies I've made so far, these are by far the most robust, mainly because the pattern allows for more seam allowance. :)
With exeption for the large owl, which has sewn belly markings, every owl has markings made from lots of "fuzzies" that I make from faux fur scraps. I've begun to count the number of fuzzies needed for the individual owls and so farthe number has ranged from 60 and up to 450 for the one with the most extensive of markings (it's none of the owls in this picture). Once they become available for sale The price will be determined by the number of fuzzies used. :3 you can see various pictures here from belly marking making: [link]

No problem~
Awesome, I love your "fuzzies". It's a great idea and really gives them a lot more charm. I can imagine that it's rather time consuming, especially for large owls! Thanks for sharing the work in progress pics- I love taking those myself on the rare occasion that I make a stuffed friend. Good luck with all your projects. :3

Unfortunately they are indeed a lot of additional work and time consuming. The quality of the fur I'm using plays a major role as well when it comes to how fast I can assemble a fuzzy. Not very surprisingly the highest quality fur (my blue fur) is easiest to work with. I was surprised though as to how much the quality varies between the remaining fabrics, which all are of the same brand, only different colors. White and red were fairly easy to work with, brown was tricky and somewhat hopeless and black was a real catastrophe. xD
So, unless I can get a price for the owls that make up somewhat for the trouble, I'll have to do larger markings with straps of fabric instead. But I agree, that the fuzzies make the markings appear a bit more natural. :D

Yeah. I'm trying to finish the batch of owls I got started on before Christmas, when I needed a break from the horse plush, which had been teasing me. Now I'm focusing on getting those things done so that I can move on to more of the things I'm meaning to do. That goes for drawing as well. :3

Thank you very much. The design is inspired from a plush owl that can be seen in the movie Lost in Translation, so I can't take full credit for the idea.
