This past weekend, Alex and I had several kid birthday parties to attend (we're in the "all the friends are married and now are having babies" stage of life). One party we attended was for a 1-year old boy with an owl-themed room. I knew what I had to do:
A Christmas Owl! Stacey
had some kits in her shop
a few weeks ago, and I snatched one up with the birthday boy in mind.
I stitched this guy as written, no mods here! The only thing I did different was use yarn for the eyes, instead of attaching the included safety eyes. Since the kid is only one, it seemed like the smarter/safer choice. You know I'll end up just using the safety eyes included with the kit on another Freshstitches pattern
I have a second owl kit, which I plan to make sometime this month. I think I may have to keep that one for myself - he will be the perfect addition to my owl-themed kitchen at Christmastime!
