Not sure what the collective for a group of owls is but a hoot sounded appropriate!
Here are some little friends I made a few weeks ago but forgot to show you.
They are from a pattern found in "Sew Hip" - a magazine I used to subscribe to. They are very easy to make and I think are quite cute. The blue one now belongs to the oldest and is called "Nathanette" - in honour of Nathan from the wanted. The pink now belongs to the youngest and is called "Owley" He has visited school a few times and has also undergone major eye surgery on both eyes! The yellow one now sits on my craft room desk, keeping a watchful eye. As yet he has no name - any suggestions!
