It's odd where inspiration can come from.
I was at Joanns just after Halloween, and lo and behold, hanging on the clearance aisle
wreaking of a deep discount was this little owl towel.
My daughter is an owl fanatic, so into the basket it went with no specific use in mind.
What will a 17 year old do with a dish towel?
Hoot, my friends.
This little squishy thing is easily stitched up from scraps of fleece,
and it would make a cool toddler gift, a nice teen gift for an aviary fanatic,
or even a good pet toy.
The eyes make it a good baby gift since they're stitched on.
No dangerous buttons.
Had enough of the photos?
Below we've included the very simple pattern pieces.
Save them and make them any size you'd like.
Ours is 10" tall and about to be recreated for every family member under four feet.

Handmade gifts are just more fun to give.

Please tell me you know I'm kidding.
