i'm rather proud of this, in a ridiculous sort of way. i'd never made anything like stuffed animals before this project, and after making a few with other people's patterns i decided to try my hand at drafting my own. i wanted to make a little owl that could stand up on his own, and voila! yes, i know it's silly. how hard is it make a pear with pointy ears and a few darts? not very. but still.
i'm also proud of my hand-sewing skills. generally i consider myself allergic to hand-sewing, as it requires dexterity and patience and a lot of hunching over and poking myself in the thumb with needles. but after forcing myself to learn the ladder stitch and blanket stitch i decided i might as well try them out. i really like the little something it adds, don't you?
