Owl patterns are abundant here in my studio.  I've collected these darling images over time.  Now I'm ready to go through the process of making templates for the various    'species'. What fun this is going to be.

First I enlarge the original drawing to the size I want to make. Using cardboard (the thickness "of cereal boxes). I draw the owl design and then cut out the shapes within the pattern.  I end up with puzzle like pieces which I use to draw the design on Weavers cloth.

Of course the real fun doesn't begin until I choose colors which I promise you, won't be always be the 'real' colors of 'real' owls.  Isn't this fun?
