Hooty Owl Embroidery

I embroidered an owl for Fruitloops in my Tea Towel Swap on Craftster. She's passing around a lovely square of linen and it was very nice to stitch on.

Owl Embroidery for Fruitloops

This pattern is called Hooty Owls and is available from Aunt Martha's. The leaves took forever on this one! I use mostly chain stitch with 2 strands of embroidery floss. I also did some couching stitches here and there. I think he's got a funny, hapless look on his face. You never quite know how faces will turn out until you stitch them!

Oh, how cute he is! Great job!

(I've always admired people who
embroider, cause I know I will never have the patience to learn it properly)

Beautifully stitched. I have also made this owl set, but to save time and because I am too impatient, I filled in the leaves with about 5 straight stitches with variegated green thread. They turned out nicely. Love these owls!
