One of the girls at work is leaving and as part of her farewell present I made her an owlet.  Here he is hiding behind the toaster:



I used Romansock's pattern but added the wings.  I didn't think my version looked quite owly enough without them.  The colours are a litte washed out with the flash but here's another pic:



Whaddya think?

I think it is really cute!

My granny collects owles, but I never made one myself for her.
Maybe I try one like that, she would love it Cheesy

love,

Awwwww!  You did an excellent job and I'm sure she adored it. If only owls came in that color... and made good pets.....

Thanks everyone!

I picked the colours because they remind me of her - she always wears bright clothes - but I'm glad you like them too!

I'm not convinced about the eyes but they're the best I could do.  Lincraft doesn't exactly have the best range of craft eyes!

My granny collects owles, but I never made one myself for her.

Gerah - it's a very simple pattern and you can make them in whatever colours and sizes you like.  It's also pretty quick.
