I wanted to print off the directions to this owl to make at a later date but was unable to. I guess I won't be making this owl any time soon. (

Oh how cute is this owl and they are on a list of many animals I like. I do not just like one but I have got to make one if not more of these owls.This has a downloadable free pattern and so easy to make. I would love to make one in a bigger size and you can print larger. Super cute.

Owls, of course. This is a great project to do with my Granddaughter, Emma, age 8, who also loves owls. Thanks for taking time to make this great project and providing the instructions, tutorial and video. Love, love, love it! Thanks, so much!
