who would have thought that one curved cable needle could create something so cute. it took only a few twists in the front with a couple of leans to the back and out popped this lovely little owl. this chickadee is always keeping an eye out for adorable aviary friends and knew right away where these would find a fitting home. it was a pleasure to put this pair together as a prezzie for pang of pretty little fings (you can check out her super cute sewn owls on etsy).
