Harry Potter Hedwig Owl
Okay, here's my Hedwig owl from Charmed Knits. I want to know what you think. I think he looks too much like a duck and I don't think I like the button eyes. Maybe I should try another color button. What do you think?

She's darling! Maybe you could do nestled button eyes. Big yellow ones with small black ones in the middle? She's still cute. I miss Hedwig!

Harry Potter Hedwig Owl
I think your owl is sweet.The eyes work (for some reason it makes me think the owl is wearing sunglasses), maybe you could use felt circles to add depth or a small white button to mimic light reflecting off the eye. As for the duck part maybe the beak color is throwing you off. All in all though that is still one very hip owl.

Everyone~ Thanks for you input and compliments. Although you can't see it in the pic, he does have feet. Pic came out rather dark despite using a flash. Oh well. I never knew about sewing on two different color buttons before. I might have to try that. I've been looking for yellow or gold buttons with a black rim around the outside. I will play around with the ideas. Thanks again!
