Owl & Kitten Toys
The shape of this pint-size toy makes for either a sweet little owl or a lovable tiny kitten. You don’t need much yarn, and you could even add stripes to your toy if you’d like. Felt eyes and ears are stitched on with a needle and thread after the toy is knit, to bring your character to life!
