Ollie the Owl now has a face! I love the way he turned out. Wool felt lasts the longest, but I had craft felt....and in a plethora of colors, so that's what I used.
Once again, the tutorial can be found at New Green Mama's blog here. I plan on making more of these little guys, and more softies in general. There is a whale softie pattern I'm dying to whip up.
