The big owl against the night sky is printed on paper. His 'arms' are more paper, and the little book is even more paper, stitched and backed with felt. Attach the green leaves to his head, add the clay buttons, stitch the 'arms' a little and attach. All of this is shown mounted on the cover of a book... to make a really cute decoration on a bookshelf.

So, a bookmark and a separate bookcase decoration! Val and JABCO did this for us as a Shop Exclusive at the recent St Charles MO Needlework Galleria consumer stitching show. Their kit includes a ton of stuff... the bookmark chart and perf paper, button, ribbon and felt, as well as the book cover printed perf paper and backing sheet, more buttons and felts... you'll just need to add your own floss. The book cover piece fits a 5 x 7 frame... in case you don't have a spare book to decorate!
