The owl is made primarily of hand-dyed wool onto which I have done some hand embroidery. The beak and feet are made of leather. The "belly" is cut from some "fabric" I made and is attached to the piece using French knots. It is VERY textural.
I also finished the bluebird (who will be sitting in the tree) for the piece. This little guy is made from pieces of fabric I hand-dyed. I have used two different colors of blue thread and a couple different embroidery stitches to attach them to a muslin and felt backing (the same foundation I used for the owl). The beak and legs are satin stitched, and I used silk embroidery thread to stitch the rosy colored breast.
I'm hoping to get the tree and leaves finished this coming week. I'll post a picture when it is finished.
