My eldest daughter is leaving home for university next week. She's all packed and looking for bits and bobs to make her flat her own. She'd seen some keyrings in a store somewhere and phoned to tell me that I could have made them so much better (aww, it's nice when your kids are proud of you).
Of course she then asked for me to do just that, a wee owl, a wee bird or something. So here she is, my first 'Little Owl'.
She's only about 4cm high and dead quick to make. I already have a bunch of blind friends for her, they are just awaiting their eyes arriving from U.S.
I thought I might write up the pattern for other folk to make their own, so if anyone wants it just let me know so that I don't forget.
