Making myself a Parliament..

of Owls that is!  (a parliament is a grouping of owls)  :)

I saw these adorable pillows on a sewing blog and just knew I had to make one.. and one turned into two which turned into.. well, you get the point!

This first little owl was my test pillow.  I didn't purchase the pattern so I was winging it (no pun intended) with sizes and shapes and such.. I could NOT get the feet to work so I ended up using those cheap stretchy winter gloves you get for a buck.. They were easy to use but turned out looking a little funky... 
Owl #2 was much more successful.
