I made this ATC for Nikki. I used a pattern of a stuffed owl from my embroidery book ‘Doodle-Stiching’ by Aimee Ray. I changed some of the stitches and added a branch. I used split stitches (outline and decoration on the belly), running stitches (wings and branch), stem stitches (branch), cross stitches (branch), laced back stitches (body), satin stitches (eyes and beak) and French knots (eyes, decoration on the belly and background). I did the embroidery on the body after I added a piece of batting. The edge is an organza ribbon.
