*** These multicolored owls were custom made for SJP. Please do not purchase them unless you are SJP. If you would like to have something similar made, please contact me and I will be happy to work with you! ***

These Mexican folk art owls are inspired by the brightly painted clay owls made in Southern Mexico. They are hand crafted out of 100% wool felt from my original pattern and painstakingly detailed with embroidery floss, scraps of acrylic felt, sequins, and vintage glass beads from my abuelita's bead box. And I do mean "painstakingly." These owls take me 11 hours on average to complete!

This particular owl features individually hand cut and sewn (no glue!) wool "feathers" in a rainbow of cheerful colors. I think that the bright colors really pop against the cool charcoal felt. Believe me when I tell you that photos do not do this little guy justice.

Owls are completely blanket-stitched for longevity and bottom-weighted with non-toxic, poly-fil pellets. They stand on their own without any problems and the wings will stay open if you choose to display them that way. Small parts (and the delicate nature of hand embroidery) make them unsuitable for children under the age of 10.

Each owl stands 7.5" (18.5 cm) tall and measures 4.25" (10 cm) across at the widest point. The last photo in the series is included to convey a sense of scale. (I regret that that particular owl is not for sale-- I need him to guard my books. Hoot!).
