Once you know the basic shapes of a tawny owl, you can start making its feathers. First, you need to make the eyes, which should be a circle, with the core wool through them. Then, you need to create the rounded end of the feathers. Once you've completed all the layers, you can begin the tail. Begin by felting the feathers as if you were making a real one, by creating a cone between your fingers and sticking it to the top of the body. Then, you need to finish the tail by gluing it to the head with more wool.
To begin the body of your owl, you will want to lay down a piece of foam to put underneath it. Once you have done this, you can start the needle felting. The needle should go into the centre of the ball, not through it. Next, roll the ball of wool until it's round and flat. If you need to, you can flatten one side to make it wider and use a thicker needle to feel deep into the body piece.
After you have made the body of your owl, you'll need to add the wings and the tail. After the wings and the tail are done, you can work on the details. If you want to add wings or a tail, you can add brown or black felt. Just remember that the bottom layer of the wing should be the lightest color. Once the wing pieces are complete, you can fold them over to make the owl look more realistic.
After the face and the neck are finished, you need to attach the hair and the eyes. Ensure that the hair and the feathers are all equal in length. When you finish the head and the body, you can add the feathers. Then, use the needle to felt the feathers on the body piece. When done, attach the tail to the body piece. Once the head and the wings are attached, the rest of the body piece is done!
The next step in making an owl is the base. After sculpting the feet and the body, you can now add the feet and the tail. After completing the owl body, you can attach the wings and the tail with wire or a thicker needle. Once the body is done, the owl's face will be the final stage. Adding the ears and the tail will complete the owl.
After cutting the body piece, the roving is ready. The body should be firm, but it should have a little "squish" to it. The details of the owl can be made using brown or black wool roving. Once the body is completed, the roving can be felt directly onto the body piece. While you're sculpting, keep in mind that you're shaping a fox.
The owl's body is the next part of the project. It will require you to use needles and roving to create the body. The body should be the lightest shade of the roving. It should be needled. Then, fold the wing pieces to form the owl's head. The wing base should be slightly longer than the body.
The wing pieces of an owl should be similar in width to the body, but be thicker in the center. Then, you can use the needles to sculpt the feet. The wingpieces should be shaped like the feet. The earpieces and wingpieces should match the size of the bodypiece. If you're creating a larger owl, you can add eyes with roving.
Once you've created the body and the base, you can add the wing pieces. The wingpieces should be firmly needled, but the wingpieces should have some "lift" to make them look good. After this, you can add the body and the tail. When it's done, the owl should be finished and ready to hang. If you're satisfied with the wingpieces, you can move on to the next step.
