Owls and Mice

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. ~Author Unknown

Look at these adorable little owls...

be they egg cosies, as the tutorial suggests,

or perhaps hand puppets or decoration on a library bag,

a gift for a friend, or anything else that comes to mind.

We have had lots of fun designing and creating them. Ess helps with the choice of fabrics etc. I think this is very much inspired by the particular fabric she wants to use to make her mice as she uses ALL the cutting out and stitching (thread) scraps to make her cute little mice. (Can you find them in the above two pictures creeping through the garden?) They are wonderful as she is totally independent in creating these mice, from design to completion and storytelling and play. I'm not sure if there is any cheese to be had though!

On to the next creative project...

oh my goodness - that is seriously cute!
How funny to read your post on the owls because I printed this pattern out last week, but that's as far as I got with them :)
Your little owls are beautiful,
