An Owl Is Born…


I decided to make these cute little owls as an end of the year teacher’s presents. I chose an owl because my son is in ‘owls’ class. I hope the teachers will like their small gifts.

Both owls are made from the same pattern, but different threads/hooks. I used size 8 cotton thread and 0.75mm hook to make the ‘big’ owl and an ordinary polyester sewing thread and 0.4mm hook to make the tiny one.

free owl pattern is in my Ravelry store: here

    Hello. These owls are so adorable. I was wondering if I could have your permission to make the products and sell them. I Will tell everyone that the pattern came from you and I will not sell the pattern.

    I really enjoyed making this Owl. Mine made me think of the old commercial…”how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?”

    I am a very lucky teacher as I have an amazingly talented parent to a child in my class who made me this as an end of year present too. Thank you so much for sharing the pattern. She inspired me to pick up a hook earlier in the year so I was browsing through Pinterest for summer holiday inspiration and arrived at your website. Now which pattern of yours shall I see if I can manage before the planning and marking starts again???
    Thank you

    Wow, I’m a teacher! I wish the mom’s of my students would gift me something like this! (I teach high school…usually at this point, parents don’t much think of teachers any longer 🙁 )
    I guess I’ll have to try to do this myself!
    Great work. I love it and am inspired.
