I have been knitting since I was about 8 years old. My mother taught me to knit and my parents encouraged me to explore all kinds of arts & crafts activities by providing me with the materials that I needed to create.
As a girl, I loved to sew (I spent hours using my mother’s sewing machine making clothes for my dolls), knit, draw and paint. In high school I spent all my extra time at school hanging out in the art room. In college I worked at a cute little yarn store and I still have some yarn in my stash that I bought at that store…way too many years ago!
I love giving hand knit gifts to my friends and family. In these days of mass produced gifts (that often require a plug-in cord or battery) it is nice to give something that is truly one-of-a-kind. I love to see the smile on their faces when they open the gift I made for them.
I enjoy knitting (of course!), teaching my daughter to sew, going to my son’s sporting events, baking, making jam in the summer, making homemade gingerbread houses in December, and going to the beach.
I hope that you enjoy using my patterns to create special heirloom quality items for your home, friends & family.
This cute little owl knits up really quick! Add some felt applique for wings, eyes and a beak. Stitch it to a note card and you have a one-of-a-kind card for a child or grandchild, Valentine's Day, a new baby or someone special.
You could also frame the owl in an inexpensive craft store shadow box for a cute wall decoration.
Or, turn the little owl into a hanging ornament by stitching two pieces of felt together, adding a little stuffing and a piece of yarn for a hanger.
Or, stitch the owl onto a hat or other knitted project.
You get the idea....there's lots of ways you can use this little knitted owl pattern.
