sailing owl

He is made from vintage feed sacks and ticking using my new owl pattern. I intended to use these round little owls only as passengers in paper mache ships and boats but he was such fun to make I think I might make a couple stand alone fellows.


  1. Oh gosh, this is GORGEOUS.

    I can’t hope to afford any of your beautiful creations, but I love to look longingly at the photos. Have you thought of photographing a couple of tableaux like this and cropping so we could use them as desktop wallpaper? I would love to have this dreamy fellow brightening my work computer. 🙂

  2. He is just adorable xxx
    thanks for telling how you start making these wonderful birds!

  3. Ahoy, matey! He is a great sailor-bird with his stripes and bit of lace fluff. Can’t wait to see the rest of the scurvy lot!
