I need sunglasses please!

6.5" high, with an 11" tail-tip base - going to a new home in Texas!

 

This little guy was sooo fun to make, a custom project based on this free pattern...

...with a few extra rows to elongate the neck. I wanted something bigger for the wings, so these are made with the pattern for Amy Gaines' Amigurumi Owls, the smaller owl. I also added feet to help stabilize him on a flat surface, and 12mm safety eyes. Yarns by Red Heart in Windsor Blue and Real Teal, and Caron Simply Soft in Violet. I had intentions of adding another blue, but it didn't look right with the three colors, so I just edited the pattern a bit to only use three colors for the tail. The outer edge is a yarn I had a little bit left on that was very similar to Bernat Boa (but another brand from when I worked at Ben Franklin Crafts).
