Some of you may recognize this owl. I made her back in 2010, but didn’t make a YouTube video of the extended tutorial. A few days ago, one of my YouTube subscribers asked if I’d ever made an owl. It reminded me that a lot of people probably never saw the original article.
You can use my pattern if you want, or make your own. I used a grid to transfer the pattern to a large piece of cardboard (the original snowy owl was about 24 inches tall). To make an owl that size, you would use a grid with 2″ squares. If you want a smaller one, just make the squares smaller. Or use a tracer/projector to enlarge the pattern, and skip the business with the grid.
