After much trial and error, I finally have this little guy! It's my first attempt at creating a 3D pattern on my own, and hopefully it's a bit different from the other owl dolls out there!
He's about 8 inches high and about 3 inches wide, with flappy wings that can be posed a little.
My favorite part about him is the scallop design on his body. I'm a little obsessed with scallops at the moment, and thought they looked a bit feather-like! To make the design I used the tapestry crochet technique for easier color changes.
So, my question to you my dear friends is, what do you think of him? Is there anything I should change? Are the ear tufts a good size? What about his eye size/placement? I'm thinking I could also make some body variations, like changing the designs from scallops to something else, or making a shorter rounder body too...
As this pattern is a bit more complex than anything I've done before, depending on the feedback and interest, I may look into writing up the pattern to sell. Don't get me wrong, I love sharing my patterns for free, but it'd also be exciting to make some money from something I love, providing me more resources to still share some free patterns!
