I’m a HUGE fan of Harry Potter and the Wizarding World. As soon as my eyes saw this owl pattern, I had to embroider it. I named her, Lyra since music moves me in many ways.
I subscribe to Scribd; Love Embroidery magazines is one of the many I follow. This particular one is Love Embroidery, Issue 8.
Honestly, it was a joy to make.
There were several things I did differently from what the pattern suggested: used two threads instead of one for the stars and I didn’t line the owl’s tale like I did the wings. If I could do it all over again, I’d go for a lighter dark gray instead of a darker shade of it – also I would embroider the wings in one angle from bottom to top. Still… she turned out beautifully.
