I cant get this pattern. Please help it so adorable and I have a friend that loves friends..

I have made similar towels and they are such at great way to use bits of fabric. My daughter loves owls and this design would be perfect for her! I would add some buttons for eyes and trim for a bit of whimsy if being used more for decor, but if actually used for a kitchen towel I would opt for the suggestions given. It would be cute with a few owlets beside a mama owl to designate family members in a fun way!

I keep a cute tea towel hanging on my bottom freezer handle to have a nice and pretty pop of color in my kitchen. This darling owl tea towel would fit right in with the cute towels that I rotate on to that spot! I love the ruffles on this towel and it looks like it would be fairly easy to make, with just a bit of extra fabric. The towel would also be a great gift idea for birthday or holidays, or even a sweet hostess gift.
