I knew over Christmas that I wanted to make an Owl for my nephew Little H. He is pretty into owls at the moment, in fact every bird (or indeed chicken) is called an Owl by him. I had a look on etsy and found this pattern One instant download later...

And here he is, owl!

The pattern was really easy to use and quick to make. Apart from the feet... I tried twice and I could not do the feet the way suggested without ripping them to shreds when turning them through. In the end my Mum and I can up with the 'Duck feet' version, and I'm pretty happy with this. After all, Little H thinks Chicken are Owls, so I'm sure he won't be fussy about feet? It's his birthday tomorrow and Owl is heading up to Leeds with Mum in the morning. Bye bye owl!
