Great Horned Owl Craft

So, I've been seeing a lot of owls around blog-town recently. I though I would try my hand at one!! Instead of totally cutesy, wouldn't harm a hair on Thumper's head owl....I made the real deal. This guy is an owls Owl. He's so owlish intimidating, that the Munchkin (who I made this for) won't let him in her room. Truth be told, I probably wouldn't enjoy waking up to him either. But, he IS a great snuggler. He went on a trip with us apple picking today. 
He was so excited. :-)
 The first time the Munchkin went apple picking, in this very orchard, we heard a Great Horned Owl calling. 

He may be intimidating, but he has no qualms with goofing around. That's my kind of owl. 
Now, I made this dude off the hip. That is to say, no pattern....and honestly, if I had a one I wouldn't know how to read it. What I'm getting at, is that if I can't read a pattern....I can't write a pattern. I haven't the foggiest how to do it.  What I *did* do is draw some sketches of general shapes you should cut out to make this guy:
I don't know if that helps or not. If you're like me, and you do it without a pattern....it might be easier for you to understand. If you know how to sew and read patterns.....well, you're better off just forgetting you saw this project and my little sketch up above. *sheepish smile*
If you have any questions or need clarifications, just write me an email.
