4th Softie Auction to raise money for Flood Appeal - Arcan the Owl

Here is the 4th of the 5 softies I'm making to raise money for the QLD flood Appeal.

Don't forget I'm also auctioning off:

Be generous and bid on this auction as all the money goes directly to The Premiers Flood Relief Appeal
His name is Arcan. Arcan is a very clever little owl. The other night, in my head Arcan the Owl looked like this, so I drew him up in illustrator:

And today, I made him up in Fabric. He came out so cute! I'm really a little bit in love with this one. I'd definitely like to make some more of him one day. 

He's made from all new fabrics, mostly poly-cottons, with felt details, such as his eyes, beak and blanket stitched heart on his tummy.

The inside of his wing is rainbow coloured to match the feathers on the outside.

He is a petite 25 cm with his feet extended.

To bid and win Arcan the Owl, here are the rules for the auction. Just leave a comment on this post with your bid amount and some way of contacting you, email address, blog address etc. This Auction is in Australian Dollars. The winning bidder will be the highest bid when the auction finishes on Monday the 24th Jan at Midnight AEDST.
We'll pay the postage if you are within Australia. You pay the winning bid amount as a donation directly  to The premiers Flood Relief Appeal and show me proof of your donation and I'll send Arcan out to you. As it counts as a normal donation, it's also tax deductible!! And you'll get to play with Arcan and feel good for donating.
The more you bid, the more money raised for the QLD Flood Appeal to help the victims of the QLD floods who have experienced unprecedented devastation and loss and they really need it!

I'm just one of a whole heap of bloggers/tweeters/facebookers who are auctioning off stuff to raise money for the appeal, thanks to Toni at Make It Perfect  for bringing everyone together to do this.
