Another one of my Visual Arts 3D projects. In order to prove to our teacher that we can sew (a little silly in my case, but oh well), we had to each make a plushie. I went a little overkill... ^_^ I've never made a plushie before in my life, but I like how he turned out.
I didn't actually paint it at first (and it was tinted blue from the pen I used to mark the felt), but I painted it for sale at the Mom's Weekend Craft Fair to benefit the Raptor Club. It's pictured with the little info card that it will come with, with bonus drawing by the artist (pfft...).
You don't really see a whole lot of realistic owl (or bird, really) plushies, so here we have a barn owl, vaguely based on Widget
, one of the birds I work with. He's such a cutie.
Anyways, this plush is more of a display piece than a toy. His wings and legs are wired so that they are somewhat poseable, but I'm not so sure how he'd hold up to a lot of handling.
